Really pretty, good conditions on still winter days, a dramatic ladder and ledge system leading North.
The rock in Rosa Gully stays quite wet after rain. This is due to the run off from the above nature strip/park opposite the houses. The northern side is devoid of sun as well during the day so the sand stones only chance of drying is from the gust of wind going up and down the gully.
The sand stone on the south side can stay quite wet after heavy rain and can get some run off from the above park. Luckily the south side gets a semi dose of the sun throughout the day to dry it off. The wind going up and down the gully also helps to dry it off. Summer is very moist in there due to onshore winds.
All the fixed pro resembles blobs of rusted metal which could almost be pulled out by hand. Except for routes that have been rebolted with stainless.
You can rap in from one of the many highline anchors in place on the south side near the mouth of the gully (straight above Pox). Easier to walk in from the grassy 'Vee" between the 2 branches of the gully is ok, can be tricky if wet or locals are watering the community garden.
Routes on the north wall of the gully and routes north on the seacliff are described first.
Then the south side (Pox etc).
Developed by everyone's favorite bolter, Mike Law, back in the 1970's.
