A couple of excellent cracks hidden in the shade on a small line of boulders about 100 metres above the grunt-in track.


Turn left where the track descends sharply around a boulder, about 100 metres before the practice slab, and bush-bash uphill. Can also be reached from The Practice Boulder by heading diagonally uphill and left. The cliff is about 100 metres below and slightly left of 'Middle Earth'.


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 outstanding curving line at the left. An easy start... But then the crack fades out.

The middle line, overtaken by blackberries and leaves at last sight. A slabby start, then progressively thinner.

A deceptively easy-looking rightwards-leaning crack just right of a pile of boulders forming a small cave.
