About Sentinel Cave:

15-20 minute walk-in This is a large cave of excellent rock high up in the valley behind Stapylton Campground with an easy flat walk-in. Hidden amongst vast amounts of choss this area is home to some hard and very steep sport routes. From the Mt Stapylton Campsite aboriginal shelter carpark walk south east following the east side of a vegetated creek. A few minutes into the walk you will pass an isolated pillar of rock with a few ok routes on it. Keep following the creek, walking along nice kangaroo grass and ferns for ten minutes until you can see a red cave above some large walls up and to the left. Try and locate some rock cairns and follow these up gentle hill. Follow left branch of ‘creek’ up small rock gully on the left side of the cave until you can traverse directly right across exposed rock to get into the cave. A RB is positioned at the end of this traverse to use as an anchor to belay people who may be scared of the traverse. It can also be used to abseil out of the cave when the traverse is wet from rain.
