To get to this boulder, park 100 metres before the gate-posts on the Booroomba track (200 metres before the campsite). Go up the ridge for about 300 metres, verring left until you find a large boulder.


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.
