Many of the quality routes at Tarana can be toproped with easy access to the top and pretty decent anchor options. Some of them might be worth leading. A highly underrated venue. Noone from Sydney drives past the Blueys and noone from Canberra leaves the ACT to go climb granite (Tas, WA, Black Range and Qld granite notwithstanding) except me on quite a few occasions. The weather at Tarana is often better than the Blueys.
