The Victoria Range was badly burnt in the fires of February 2013 but all areas are now open to climbing (Feb 2014). However there are access changes to the cliffs in the Eureka area.
Emu Rock is found above Muline Crag.
Park your car about 200m south of Muline Creek on Red Rock Road near a small clearing. Head east on old 4WD track for 5mins to road. Turn right, then on your left after about 50-100m is a cairned well established track. Follow this for around 20mins until you reach Muline Crag. Waltz up the left end and scramble left up a corner, then when you are on the tier above Muline Crag, follow the cliff right until you come to a weakness in the cliff and head up through this. The magnificent Emu Rock is soon apparent.
Descent: there are 3 abseil options. 1) 35m. ~10m left of the top of 'Whipping Boy' is a large bollard with slings and a ring on it. 2) 55m ~ 20m down and right of the top of Cyclops is a bolted rap station (extended with rope, which was looking a little tired July 2018). 3) 45m, slings on bollard approx 3m right and down from 'Patagonia' P2 belay. Apparently you can walk off - this would be epic!© (jgoding)
