Basque climber Saioa starting up Penny Lane
|Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>|
Penny Lane is probably the most popular and sunniest of all the Smoke Bluff crags. It over looks the beautiful Hospital Hill residential area.
Most routs are easier to rappel but walking off is an option.
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.
