When walking up the Booroomba track from the carpark, about 300m before the top campsite and 100m to the right of the track is this large boulder distinctly marked by water runnels.©
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.
One of Booroomba's first modern face climbs, it takes a thin crack up the overhanging wall.

Painful. Start three metres right of the promised land, climb past 4 bolts (may have since been retrobolted), breaking through the pain barrier at the second.
FA: Mike Law-Smith, 1982
