The crack/trench bounding the left end of the Central Slabs. The crack is hard to get to, and not particularly worthwhile anyway. The aid used on the second pitch was freed by Roark Muhlen as part of 'Powder Finger Finish'. Climb the first pitch of 'Outer Limit' or the first and second pitches of 'Bananas in Pyjamas'.

  1. 8m - From the 'Outer Limit' belay, climb up and slightly left (small wires) as for 'Jubilate Direct Start', and continue up and left to the base of the crack.

  2. 15m - Climb the thin cracks (crux) left of the main crack past a tree, to belay where the cracks converge.

  3. 32m - Climb the crack to a stance.

  4. 12m - Scramble up to finish. DBB on left.

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.
