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 cliff with a few good cracks, south of the Booroomba lookout. The climbs are described from left to right. At the left-hand end is 'Five Cracks Wall'.



Approach up the gully from The Practice Boulder, 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.

The crack on the left wall of the large corner 10 metres right of 'Mordor'. Climb up the corner on the right, then back left into the crack and up. The direct start up the crack makes it even better, but a fair bit harder. Gear to blue camalot.

The chimney corner two metres right of 'Plastic Appearance', starting at a crack four metres right of the corner.
