Description

The climbs are described from left to right. At the left-hand end is 'Five Cracks Wall'.

Approach

This small cliff lies south of the main areas (see map pg. 30 of ACT Granite or the topo for Booroomba Rocks). Approach up the gully from the practice slab, or by walking southwest from the top campsite over rock slabs to a granite dome. The cliff is across the gully from this.

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.
