While short, this route offers a relaxing and variable line up the West face of the west Hall of Horrors wall. It is just left of Ledges to Lawndale on the highly featured wall, and offers a great view of King Dome and the expansive valley. The climbing is on a jigsaw puzzle of patina cracks allowing for creativity in placing pro and in choosing a line up the route.

Walk off to the north with easy scrambling.


Wires and a few small to mid-size cams is more than enough. For the anchor there is a single bolt which can be backed up with a hex or large cam.

Hard to believe that this is even a route, we third classed this as it's a waste of time to uncoil the rope for this one.

Its an alright climb for a begginer to warm up on... Not the best for a first time climb for younger climbers.. its kinda weird for a 5.4, So definatly not reccomended for new climbers..

Really not worth doing unless you're trying to set up easy TRs for beginners. Walk up is cake, and the other three easy/moderate routes (Buckets to Burbank, Ledges to Lawndale, Pullups to Pasadena) are right next to it with the anchors equally easy to access and set up. Gets sun in the afternoon.

not worth uncoiling the rope, if you are looking for a warm up do Buckets to Burbank. Hollywood should be reserved for climbing beginners. Gave it one star as it is a perfect climb for bringing out your newbie tag-a-longs, but would get a bomb for anyone who can climb over 5.7

Seemed way easier then a 5.4, but eh. Big holds, nothing really to say about it, except do it for another one of those ticks...
