A pleasant, isolated little crag situated at the head of 'Punchbowl Creek' and overlooking Booroomba Homestead.



Climbs are described from left to right. There is a rap anchor at the top of the main wall, above 'Black Satin Lingerie'.



Drive along Corin Road, cross Billy Billy creek then Gibraltar Creek and park on the left at the second track (300m beyond Gibraltar Creek). Follow the track up to a T-junction and turn right. 100m further on is a large clearing; turn left and go overland for 200m, crossing a track then a creek. Pick up the track again and continue uphill for 500m to a T-intersection. A low saddle can be seen between two peaks to the southeast. White Horse Rocks is just out of sight on the northeast side of the left-hand peak. Cross the fence, then the creekbed and bushbash to the top of the left-hand hill. The walk to the rocks, just over the lip, should take about fifteen minutes from here.
