Start at the first belay on 'Counterbalance'.

  1. 45 metres - up as for 'Counterbalance', keeping to the right till a crack at about 10 metres. Up to a ledge and sling a small spike. Move up to a corner and up to the right end of a ledge. Up to and over a large overlap and climb a short corner to a ledge and tree belay.

  2. 25 metres - Up the slab to a corner (about three metres right of the big flake on the top pitch of 'Balance'). Continue to the top.

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.
