Description:©

A good climb but the upper pitches are poorly protected and quite serious. It takes a line up the lower slabs right of 'Outer Limit' to finish on the left-hand side. Start 30 metres left of 'Closer In' at a short crack below a ledge.

  1. 18m (15) - Climb the crack to the ledge and traverse easily right to a tree and large flat rock at the right-hand side.

  2. 25m (18) - Climb through the bulge to gain a crack system. Follow this up and right to a ramp above. Move right along the ramp for a few metres, then step onto the slab above (just short of a ledge). Left to a bolt then up the slab to a large scoop on the 'Outer Limit' traverse (shared with 'Crimble Cromble' and 'Space Wasted').

  3. 12m (16) - Serious, although there is gear if you look for it. Exit from the scoop on the left and traverse steeply up left to a corner to belay.

  4. 45m (18) - Poorly protected. Leftwards onto a traverse line to within six metres of 'Linear Crack' (just before the bolts on 'Bananas in Pyjamas'), then up and right to an open corner. Double bolt belay in the recess above.

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.
