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.


A small collection of boulders, with one excellent crack. The lower part of the outcrop is visible across the valley as you're walking up the Booroomba walk in path.



Walk along the blocked-off, scrubby road starting on the right as you arrive at the carpark for about one kilometre. At the top of a steep section the road flattens out; look for a cairn on your left after 50m or so. Head to the top of the hill or, having missed the cairn, follow the road to the ridge and double back along it for about 200 metres to (if you're lucky) a group of boulders.


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.
