Description Suggest change

Penny Lane is one of the most popular and sunniest of all the Smoke Bluff crags. It over looks the beautiful Hospital Hill residential area.

It's easy to rappel most routes. Walk-offs are also an option.

Getting There Suggest change

You can either walk up from the designated parking area or access from the Loop trail/Pixie Corner trail at the west end of the cliff by climbing and easy gully. At the east end you can climb an easy canyon-like gully which links Penny Lane to Fern Gully and Ronins Corner.
