Kelly's Heroes takes the right crack through the r...


This is a fun climb with a thin face start, a jug haul roof and nice face climbing along a finger crack above.

This route is now sport bolted and is well protected.

A little contrived on the lower face past fun climbing, but the roof is a kick in the pants.


This is the right of two cracks splitting a cool roof, just left of Walk the Yellow Line. It starts up a thin face, right of the Stella's Fella crack.


7 new bolts - lower off. No trad gear needed.

Worthy route. "Hero" climbing through the roof was memorable, whole line was quality fun.
