My first was the towering mega-classic Yesterday's Heroes (17) on shiny rings at Berowra in Sydney

For sure Wendy - we've been climbing trad together for many years so she has done a lot of seconding but has just never been keen to lead before. Will kick off placement training this weekend and do a bit more each weekend we go climbing before we come down. Will save the first lead for Araps though - a lot nicer than the easy routes in the bluies or sydney. My question was aimed at finding short, single pitch, well-protected routes that don't have the exposure of the starred classics. Bushrangers bluff looks an excellent starting point. It's also great to hear everyone's different points of view which keeps me entertained when I should be working!
