An absolute classic and possibly the best at the grade at Booroomba. A steep start up the right wall of Square Gully, opposite Jack of Diamonds. Climb the wall past a bolt (crux) and onto the slab. Follow the ramp and keep moving left into a corner system. Up to a double bolt belay.

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.
