Description

This is the outcrop on the hill opposite the start of the Booroomba walk in path.

©

Approach

Walk along the blocked-off road past the carpark for about one kilometres to a steep section, looking for a cairn. Follow the line of cairns to the top of the hill or, having missed the cairn, follow the road to the ridge and follow this leftwards for about 200 metres to (if you're lucky) a group of boulders. See overhead topo.

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.

Further climbs are about 80 metres downhill on a small, broken cliffline.

A little painful. The hand crack through the roof at the northern end.

4

The short off-width just right of 'For Better or Worse'.

FA: Dan Mannix, Dave Sargent, 1988

A good finger crack which is about 90 metres right of 'For Better or Worse'. Will be more sustained once the tree is removed.
