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'.


Access issues inherited from Gibraltar and Corin Road

Some of the crags in the south of this area (e.g. Cantaloupe Hill) were burned in the 2020 Orroral Valley bushfire. Please exercise caution in fire affected areas.


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.

The first two climbs are on an isolated buttress 200 metres down the ridge from the main crag.

The hand-sized layback crack.

FA: Mark Sands & David Jenkins, 1987

Up the corner two metres right of 'Nothing Too Serious' - use the left wall, then the arete.

FA: David Jenkins & Mark Sands, 1987

The surprisingly tricky crack at the left hand side of the crag. Up to a spacious ledge then the short corner crack. Move right to finish below the hanging blocks.

FA: Dick Curtis, Mike Todd, Tony Wood & John Spahr, 1975

The groove four metres down from 'Knuckles'. Bouldery start is the crux.

FA: Mike Law-Smith (solo), 1983

Closed project - mixed line reminiscent of the days of Yor

Start below a grassy recess left of 'Gibber Tari', and follow the crack and chimney before traversing right to finish.

FA: Dick Curtis & John Spahr, 1975

Off-width chimney with a bulge at two-thirds height, down and left from 'Transience'.

FA: Joe Friend & John Lamb, 1979

Start at the corner around 10m from 'Short Shrift'. Climb up for two metres, then right around the arete and up the short crack and dirty groove.

FA: Adam Blizzard & John Churchill, 1986

V-shaped chimney on the wall 5m left of Dragon. Exit left.

FA: Mike Todd & Tony Wood, 1975

Off-width crack just left of 'Blue Wind'.

FA: Phil Cullen, Ian "Sam" Baker & John Stone, 1978

Steep and sustained crack on the main wall.

FA: Damien Jones & Paul Daniel, 1978

A technical but well-protected traverse. Start as for 'Blue Wind' for 5 metres, then head right past four bolts to lower-off.

FA: Mike Peck & Craig Kentwell, 1987

Sustained face climbing. Start three metres right of 'Blue Wind'. Up past a bolt to the first bolt on 'Blue Velvet'. Continue up through the overlap and wall above passing four more bolts. DBB.

FA: Simon Carter, 1991

Crack just right of the main wall. Originally done in two pitches(!).

FA: Dick Curtis & Peter Mills, 1975

An impressive flake-formed off-width right of 'Short Soup'. Requires big pro - stacked hexes on the first ascent, but big camalots will do fine.

FA: John Stone, 1978

The slab-to-shallow-fingercrack 5m right of 'Cratercritter' on a short wall.

FA: Adam Blizzard, 1986

Short and sharp - finish up a short slab section. The wall with two bolts a couple of metres right of 'Stormbringer'.

FA: Andrew Kean & Mike Peck, 1986

Wide crack a couple of metres right of 'Skewer', at the right hand side of the crag.

FA: Tony Wood & Mike Todd, 1975
