Summary

Nice long wall with lots of fun problems. Great quality rock, good landings. The main wall faces west and overhangs 5 to 20 degrees.

Access issues

NOTE: This area has extremely fragile soils and vegetation (especially since the fires). Avoid making trails by NOT walking single file and, where possible, hopping from rock to rock.

Approach

The area is one one of the first rock outcrops visible from the carpark on the northern sided of the Hollow Mountain track. To access walk up the trail towards Andersens until the first rock step. Then rock hop back rightwards bearing back towards the carpark. PLEASE do not make a 'B-line' track to this spot directly from the carpark.
