Catch the Wind Area - how to get there?
10:52:18 AM
Anyone care to share how to get to the so-called Catch the Wind Area?

Try as I might, I can't find anything about about the approach. I know there's not a lot there, but it looks good.

Any help greatly appreciated!

It is off the end of Kenny St, Mt Vic.
This assumes you know how to read a map, and are not reading it while walking near the cliff edge, because that might be unsafe.

Thanks! So I assume it's fairly obvious when you get there? Rap in or walk in?

Edit: yep, guess I should have studied that map before posting. Looks like a rap in affair...

You can walk in from Zig Zag crag but its a long walk. If coming from the top, just walk down the path from the parking area, turn right and parallel the clifftop, looking for a vague footpad leading down the hill. You have to scramble down, then chimney down, then cross a small creek leading to a waterfall, then follow around the exposed ledge to the anchors. A 50m rope reaches the ground.

Cheers for the tips.

we wandered round part of the track the other day doing a cliff top walk from our place to pulpit rock . The track at the end of Kenny is signposted as the "Henry Lawson Walk". Walk down it to the top of a small rock outcrop, step round this to the right and pick up the HL track going right (looking outwards) as PThompson says. a few hundred metres along this is an obvious gully on the left with a lot of small trees in it (opposite a block where nearly all the trees have been bulldozed); this leads down and out to the ledge with the bolts on it at the top of CTW.

There isn't much parking at the end of Kenny these days so it might be more convenient to park at the end of Grandview (the sunset rock car park) and walk down the steps at the start of Kenny st (public pathway) to the other end of the HL walk and approach from the north.
