Climbing Broccoli 27-Dec-2017 At 4:48:51 AM Wendy
Now, I like broccoli. I even like granite cracks. But despite Damo's frothing about Billy Billy for several years now, I haven't been there because:

(a) You have to be in Canberra, something I have managed only once in the 30 odd years since I lived there.

(b) A handful of spreadout microroutes doesn't inspire me to slog up a bloody great big hill. I could just turn up at squamish and head for the smoke bluffs for a much better version of climbing broccoli with 2 second access and a lot more routes. Or the valley bottom crags in Yosemite.

(c) Buffalo is between me and Billy Billy.

Incidently, Valle di Mello is massively over rated. Don't bother climbing your broccoli just to go there. Just take your bouldering pad. There must be something really uninspiring about the climbing in a place when even I think the bouldering is the best thing there.

To paraphrase an immortal line, Billy Billy is a worthless crag and if I ever go there I'll say it again. :) Ok, so i'll probably go there at some point and I'll probably like the climbs, but I'm still going to say Damo is frothing about remote microroutes. Did he say 7m???? Maybe I should just take my bouldering pad!
