Did you know?

Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.


This is the ship-sized block you walk around about half-way up the Booroomba walk-in track.


Ethic inherited from Booroomba Rocks

The ethic at Booroomba is generally staunchly traditional. Most climbing goes either entirely on gear or gear with bolts for those walls where there is insufficient gear to protect climbs. Climbs are occasionally rebolted, but retro-bolting would be considered vandalism of the lowest order.

Climb the block, leap the void onto the boulder - scramble to the top and retrace your steps. Once an initiation climb for the area and must only be climbed in volleys. Somewhat spookier now that it is mossy, but at least there's a log plugging the gap again.

Climb the rightward leaning diagonal line of holds with four bolts. Pull round onto the arete and up easily to a bolt belay.

FA: Mike Peck & Simon Carter, 1987

Batman start. Excellent moves on an overhanging dyke of smooth granite on mostly big holds. 27 or 28.
