One of the best early climbs. It ascends the right side of the Prow and then follows a groove on the right-hand side of 'The Central Slabs'. Start at a corner 30 metres below and left from 'Determinant'.
8 metres - Easily up the crack to a ledge.
12 metres - Climb the wall on its left, using the incipient crack - probably the crux.
15 metres - Climb a short wall on the left and then the groove to a spacious ledge on the left.
30 metres - A steep pitch which has dealt out its fair share of screamers. Climb past a tree stump then continue up the corner crack, which cuts diagonally right, to the Prow. Walk left for 10 metres to some large rounded blocks.
50 metres - Climb the right-hand side of the blocks, left up a short wall, then easily up the groove system to a tree belay beneath a chimney.
38 metres - The chimney and crack above, using the curving slab on the left. Up into a recess and exit using a series of corners on the left.
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.
