The best way to the Northern Slabs is to take the central access track and skirt all the way under the North Buttress. From the look out walk left (looking out) along the cliff line and after about 50m there will be a steep gully trending back down and to the right towards the North Buttress.
Follow the track down the gully (it's pretty clear) and underneath Determinant Buttress then Central Slabs. At any cairned junctions take the left, low road. The track moves away from the rock after the Central Slabs, rejoining it at the right-hand edge of the Northern Slabs just left of Denethor / Counterbalance.©
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.
