About Sherdain Hills:

Ross McGarva and John Jamieson were the first climbers to visit Sheridan Hills in March of 1991. Bryce Martin tagged along on their second trip when they did their first climb, Hotter Than a Very Hot Thing, adding one of his own, Hannah Louise, on the same day. Bryce returned with Dave Garrity and they climbed “Arms Control” and “Canard” on their first visit, then with regular visits through the winter added a further 36 routes. Come spring and the light-weights came out to play: first Craig Miller for a brief stint before emigrating to Canada, and then a team of newbie apprentices: Cliff Ellery, Dean Maxwell, and Michael Camilleri. By Michael Camilleri.
