Exposed friction climbing at its best. Start 15m left of 'Sunstroke' on or just to the left of a flake resting against the slab.

  1. 30m - Technical climbing up and left for 8m, step right to a small ledge at 14m, then easier climbing straight up to belay as for 'Sunstroke'.

  2. 28m - danger - superb but unprotected. Move right over blocky ground then left up a short steep ramp. Gather your courage, step onto the slab then straight up to belay at the overlap. Finish up 'Solantic', 'Hands Free', 'Tachyon', or 'Equilibrium'.

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.
