Description 

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.


Getting There 

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.

Penny Lane 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  North America : Canada : ... : Penny Lane
This is a classic Smoke Bluff crack. Start with a few boulder moves off the ground. Move up into the shallow corner by stemming and jamming, it eases up as it gets higher.The route has no anchor at the top so you must build a gear anchor (BD .4 or yellow Alien are useful), and rappel using a single 60m off the bolted anchor 20' to the left....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
