Access @ Tenneriffe
10:27:55 AM
Heading to Tenneriffe on the weekend and can't find the phone number to contact the landowner up there, the one on the vcc site is the wrong number can anyone help me out? Also want to camp there if anyone's got directions would be much appreciated.

Don't think access is a problem to the Sparrow Slabs area anymore.

I called the VCC access officer when I first went there, no response. So we just went through - waved to whoever lived on the the same road and they waved back.

Not a bad area. Think it's underrated. Bring big bolt plates though and some wires - Adrenalin hangers fit but RP brand and the other small ones you get in Melbourne climbing shops (forget the brand) are too small for some routes. Can get a bit hairy if you're at the bolt with hard climbing to come and no way to clip in to the fixed pro (well, I felt like pooing my pants, at any rate).

Access is not a problem if you use the directions in the Eastern Districts guide. Sparrow Slabs are easily accessed via a 5 min. walk from the car. Other areas are a bit of a walk in but worth the effort. Recommend going to Blunt Rock through to Eagle rock area.

The land owner at the northern end was planning (5 years ago) to put a camp ground in. This unfortunately hasn't happened yet. Not sure where the nearest camping is?
