Expansion required (The following locations of hollowed-out rocks need more detailed descriptions, where exactly they can be found.)
This article is too short to provide more than rudimentary information about the subject. You can help The Vault by expanding it.
  • Court Fork Overlook: on the right side of a grouping of boulders immediately south of the blue scenic overlook sign.
  • Dead Horses Camp: above the camp, northwest of the Angel Cave map marker, on the left side of the next plateau beyond the one where the bighorner mother is found.
  • North Fork Bridge: northeast of the bridge, or southwest of Cueva Guarache, off the river shoreline in view of the bridge, between a cliff face and a large boulder.
  • Pine Creek Tunnel on the southwestern/right hand side, just after crossing over the unnamed bridge (southwest of East Fork Bridge) leading to the road to the tunnel.
  • Three Marys on a ledge due south of 3 clustered cliff encampments midway through the river passage.
  • Three Marys on a ledge on the eastern cliff wall heading into the final section of the pass, southeast of the Three Marys map marker.
  • Bighorn Bluff near the cliff wall and a couple boulders at the northwestern end of a small pass a short distance west of the camp and load point/map marker. You could also go west and follow the cliff wall from the Ranger Substation Eagle.
  • Sun Sentinels on a recessed path on the mesa top, south of the map marker.
  • The Spine south by southeast of the map marker between two cliff walls, at the outer edge of the map, not far to the left of a blue hiking trail marker sign.
  • East Fork Bridge on a ledge directly above the northwest end of the bridge. In order to access it, you must walk around the cliff and wind your way up and back towards the bridge. It is possible to become stuck between the hollowed out rock and the cliff face if you jump down from above. Kill any hostiles near the bridge before walking up so that you can fast travel to the bridge if that occurs.
  • Burial Mounds up on a set of steep ramps on the outer cliff wall west of the gravesites. Follow the wall to find the ramps. Alternatively, you may follow the outer cliff wall east from Yao Guai Cave. From there; if you've reached the mounds you've passed the ramps.
  • Clear Water Docks off of the shoreline and next to the cliff wall, in view northeast directly across from the dock.
  • Caterpillar's Mound immediately northwest of the mound, on another hill near the cliff wall. The other rock is directly south within view.
  • Caterpillar's Mound on a ledge a short distance to the southwest of the mound. The other rock is directly north within view.
  • Zion Canyon


  • These rocks are much easier to spot with Rex's Search and Mark perk, which highlights any container with food, chems, firearms, and ammunition inside. If you don't have Rex, you can still identify them by the symbols marked on them. Some rocks will have nothing written on them, but will generally be a slightly different color than the surrounding rocks.

Dead Money

While Dead Money doesn't contain hollowed-out rocks, it still follows the same principle of marking stashes with graffiti. There are a total of 13 stashes to be found in the Sierra Madre, some being one or more containers, some simply loose objects.

Lover's mark stashes

  • Medical District: Exit the clinic's back door, go straight across the courtyard to the opposite wall, turn back to the west, facing the door you just exited. Immediately to the Courier's left will be a lover's mark and a medical supply stash.
  • Medical District: Exit the clinic's back door, head north-west through the gift shop and up the stairs, then out onto the roof through a hole in the wall, head straight across from the hole, then look down at the ledge directly above the archway on the opposite side. The lover's mark is on the left wall. Either jump up to the ledge on the left and drop down from there or jump across from the ledge to the right.
  • Puesta del Sol North: At the entrance from the Villa head west through the archway then immediately turn left and look behind the pillar near the tree stump.
  • Puesta del Sol South: Exit the south gate from Puesta del Sol North into Puesta del Sol South, then immediately turn right. Behind the fifth pillar the Courier will find a lover's mark and food items.
Note: Across the courtyard due southeast is a poison cloud. Run through it, down a short hall, then through the broken wall and up flights of stairs to the roof where Dean Domino's Strike Up the Band quest is set.
  • Puesta del Sol Switching Station: From the switching station's entrance, walk east and turn around as soon as the Courier enters the first room. A lover's mark is on the power control box that is mounted on the right hand wall as the Courier faces back west to the entrance.
  • Residential District: At the entrance from the Villa turn left and look behind the pillar.
  • Residential District: From the chairs where you originally meet Dean Domino, head downstairs and exit through the south door, then head to the south wall directly opposite. The lover's mark is on the pillar in the south west corner.
  • Residential District: Go up the stairs directly across from the entrance from the Villa, go through the house on your right, then head up the stairs you see as soon as you exit. Once inside the house look for an oven to the left. The lover's mark is on the left side of the oven itself along with a first aid box beside it.
  • Salida del Sol North: From the apartment exit in the wall, turn right and follow the path until it makes a right turn; instead of following it, turn left and enter the hole in the wall which leads to a shop with a hologram. Exit the shop's other entrance and turn right until you reach a wall that says "Where Are We". Turn to the right and follow the stairs, passing the courtyard, then follow the archway and keep to the right so you enter another courtyard. The lover's mark is diametrically opposite of where you enter the courtyard behind a pillar.
  • Salida del Sol North: Locate the snow globe. Exit that room, head west and around the narrow roof edge, through the poison fog, then across the top of the gate arch to the opposite roof edge, finally turn left and go to the north wall. There the Courier will find a lover's mark and a weapon repair kit.
  • Villa, east side: Face the doors to Salida del Sol South, turn north-west and walk under the arches; at the back wall the Courier will find a lover's mark and food items.
  • Villa, east side: Having the doors to Salida del Sol South behind you, look up to the left and on a wall connecting two buildings a lover's mark can be seen. Jump up and grab a box on a plank between the two roofs.
  • Villa, west side: From the Villa's east side hologram control terminal 01 go south east, up the stairs and follow the left wall. Under the first arch the Courier finds a lover's mark and a metal box that contains a sensor module and 4 or more Sierra Madre chips.


Hollowed-out rocks appear commonly in Fallout: New Vegas, while the lover's mark stashes appear only in Dead Money.
