Initially as for North Buttress: From the lookout, walk 50m left (looking out) to the top of a descent gully. Follow this back right under the lookout and through Middle Rocks to the base of the North Buttress.
For the right side of the Central Slabs, continue on 25m to the first cairn and track to the right, then scramble 5m up to a bushy ledge below the climbs. For the left side of the Central Slabs, continue another 20m to the second cairn and track to the right.
This skirts along the bottom of the central slabs, then up for 10m or so to a large ledge. 15 min walk from the lookout.©

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.
