Crag features

Hollywood Bowl is the prominent slabby ‘bowl’ toward the left end

of the big cliffs on the skyline up and left of Mount Fox.

Great climbs, particularly in the easier grade of good length (typically 2 pitches) on good, slabby and vertical rock with good gear. Set high in the Vic Range you get beautiful views and a high likelihood of seeing eagles float by as you climb.

Approach notes

A long walk in 45 minutes - 1 hour with a difficult to follow path that becomes a bish bash near the top.

Park in the small layby (room for 4 cars) on Red Rock Road, 3.2km west of Billywing Road opposite a track that leads to the crag.

Walk along the track to a T-junction for approximately 1km and turn right. Approximately 40m take the narrow track on the left marked by a cairn that leadz uphill. Follow this track to Mt Fox (around 25mins) then cut left at the base of the crag and hack your way up the steep hill passing occasional cairns.

The crag is visible from Red Rock Road. The track from Mt Fox takes you to this area in the region of "Arrows of Desire".

The best descents are to abseil either off good chains at the top of Citizen Kane on Satyricon Wall (recommended) or off old slings around a bollard at the top of Arrows of Desire on the Main Wall.
