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.
A classic line. The widening crack on the Booroomba side of the outcrop with a hard start. Gear from #0.5 to #4 camalot.
