Bullsh1t, Booroomba is rad. Don't be such a negative nancy. There's easily two pretty bloody good days worth of climbing.
Day 1, South Buttress;
Integral Crack - 48m 20
No Beans for Bonzo - 48m 22
African Walking Tree - 40m 21
Alligator Wine - 35m 22
Sipple (plus whatever simple access pitch to Sipple takes your fancy) - 20m 18
Day 2, North Buttress
Closer In (first two pitches - 50m 19, 50m 20) then into...
Dry Route 20m 17 (this one pitch alone, which unbelievably is given no stars despite being the best pitch at grade 17 at the whole crag, would make the trip worthwhile in my opinion... its hard to explain)
Then walk back down and do all three pitches of Nothing Left 50m 23, 50m 22, 25m 21
