A good introduction to slab climbing. 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 below 'The Terrace'.
30m - Up the slab (crux) to a ledge. Pull over the bulge and up the easy slabby corner. Surmount the overlap and traverse right and up to belay at the left end of 'The Terrace'.
40m - Walk right about 7m then climb over blocks to a prominent groove. Climb the groove, which is awkward near the top, step left and up a short V-corner. Continue up blocks and slabs to belay on a comfortable triangular ledge on the right.
30m - Move left and climb the crack, thin seam and slabs to bushy ledge. Tree belay. 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.
