Description:©

Indirect but sustained at the grade. Start below a steep ramp above the first belay on 'Determinant'.

  1. 20 metres - Delicately leftwards along the ramp and up a crack to a cramped belay beneath the overhang. A good pitch.

  2. 18 metres - Traverse right to below a steep corner crack.

  3. 18 metres - Climb the narrowing corner crack past a horizontal break to a ledge. Finish up 'Big Boris'. Some aid was used on this pitch during the first ascent.

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.
