Climbs the slabs and grooves bordering the right-hand end of the northern slabs. Start at a short, steep black slab just left of a damp overhang where the walking track rises after skirting 'The Terrace'.
30 metres - Up the slab (crux) to a ledge. Pull over the bulge and up the easy slabby corner moving right to a good stance.
20 metres - Rightwards over slabs and scrubby ledge, then up between blocks to belay beneath a leftwards-curving groove.
25 metres - Climb the groove, which is awkward near the top, step left and up a short V-corner. Continue up blocks and slabs to a small ledge above a tree.
30 metres - Up the obvious crack behind the belay, which trends left to a small ledge. Pleasantly up the slab above using a thin seam, to the bushy ledge. A further 60 metres of easy slabs leads to the top of the buttress.
- 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.
First Ascent: Peter Aitchison & Tony Wood (alt.), 1969
