Sleepy Hollow

Rock climbing at Sleepy Hollow

The climbing at Sleepy Hollow is on overhanging & slab quartzite faces. The limestone crag in the campsite is off limits to climbing at this stage. The crags are set in thick & beautiful indigenous bush. Sleepy Hollow is really a lovely place. Very quiet, lots of birds & wild life.

The sport routes are a bit short, but super challenging & in the shade. The slabs are more adventure climbing & there is a bit of veg.

Lots of walking paths, swimming & activities for the kids make Sleepy Hollow an ideal place to combine less adventurous family outings & climbing. There is lots of some potential for new routes, both sport & trad.

Sleepy Hollow is a holiday resort, they have lots of accommodation. There is camping & various cottages.
