Start at the left-hand edge of 'The Terrace', about 15m left of Echidna.

  1. 45m - head left as for 'Counterbalance' and up to the top of the juggy brown slab (about 20m). Head straight up the wall on small rounded edges to a 10cm wide curving ledge at 29m and a bolt (replacing a spike that fell off sometime in the 30 years after the first ascent). Climb a further 15m to a corner. Climb the corner and belay near bushes.

  2. 25m - Up the slab to a right-facing 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.
