From a tussock campsite to the north-west, (where there was an old hunters’ camp) the crags can be approached up a long shingle slide to a col on the ridge overlooking upper Vincent Creek. Derwent Crags are very rocky and rugged, but quite good travelling along the crest. The ridge then provides easy access to Mt Tarleton.
