An improvement on the middle sections of 'Vent Crack'

  1. 25m - As for Vent Crack P1: climb the crack (chimney) and V-shaped cleft then step left to a small ledge. Continue up the right-facing crack, then traverse left across the top of Snickers Wall to a chain belay on a comfy ledge.

  2. 25m - Climb a corner above the belay. Straight up the slab then traverse left and up to an obvious corner, up this to a ledge.

  3. 20m - Climb the slab using the huge flake and continue over poised blocks and through bushes (to rejoin 'Vent Crack'). Up a short crack on the left of the bulge to a stance.

  4. 30m - Climb the water-smoothed slab to the left of the bulge, crossing right to an obvious weakness and up to a large ledge.

  5. 10m - climb the short wall and scramble 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.
