Description

Excellent mostly-bolted crimping and slabbing blasting directly up the water streak, topped off with a sporty top pitch. Take wires and small cams (up to 2.5).

  1. 47m (23) - Start as for 'Anything So Nothing'. Up the slab for a few metres to a diagonal crack, over this and follow the 'Rubbishman' diagonal left for a few moves. Climb straight up the streak on the wall up to a bolt, right and up past a second, then diagonally up left to a #1 friend in break (long sling), back right and continue up streak past three bolts to the bulge, straight over this (bolt) to a stance and double bolt belay.

  2. 50m (22) Straight up the water streak past five bolts to a flat ledge and rap anchor at 30 metres. Belay here if you want to finish up 'Take It All'. Otherwise trend slightly left up slab (as for the fourth pitch of 'Anything So Nothing') to overlap (#2 friend). Over the overlap at a broken flake and up dirty rock to a large ledge with double bolt belay - a rope stretching 50 metres, if in doubt use the first belay.

  3. 38m (21) - Off block right of the high rap anchor and up short cracks into left diagonal. Up wall past two bolts to jug and #1 Friend in diagonal overlap. Over this (#2 friend) and up easing wall and slab to bolt where slab steepens. Left past this to top of pillar and over blocks and ledges to double bolt belay on top.

Ethic

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.
