Description 

The Hollywood Area is a remote collection of giant boulders and some smaller formations lying in and about washes and scattered about some rocky hillsides. The approach is the longest in the Oz Area and gets you into an area that sees little traffic despite the high number of climbers in the Park.

Getting There 

Park at the south parking turnout (see OZ overview for details) and head west in the wash past the turnoffs for Valley Of Voices and Emerald City. About 500 meters past the Poppie Field Boulders you'll encounter a rough section with some boulders, after which the wash levels out and becomes sandy again and opens into a broad, open valley.

Hollywood lies to the south (left) and North Hollywood to the north (right). Plan on 45-60 minutes for the approach depending upon your hiking speed.

Start just right of a triangular cutout at the base of the rock and climb straight up the face using steep smears and tiny handholds on impeccable stone. The crux comes at about two-thirds height as you transition slightly to the right, although it stays independent of either climb all the way to the top. Somewhat reminiscent of the route Obsidian, although easier.The excellent rock and highly technical moves make this a fun route to do after warming up on Lesbian Lust or one of the other nearby...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
