A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

Long/Lat: 146.951034, -41.217990

Access Issues:

The climbing at Hillwood is on private land and the access to this area is a delicate issue. If it is your first time climbing at Hillwood the land owner has requested that you call Gerry Narkowicz on 63301435.

If there is a sign on the fence saying that the area is closed for shooting vermin please do not enter the area!

Approach:

From the East Tamar Hwy: Take the first right off Batman Bridge onto Craigburn Rd, a dirt road. Several minutes down you'll see cliffs, a gate and stile to the left. Park here, use the stile. If you get to the sealed portion of Craigburn Rd you've missed it.

Where To Stay:

Egg Island Reserve, five minutes south of the climbing at Hillwood is the recommended camping location. Egg island has no facilities (no water, no toilets). It is also possible to camp at Batman Bridge Reserve five minutes north of the climbing. Batman Bridge is more widely used (noisy), it does have toilets - however there are now large "No Overnight Camping" signs at this area.
