Access issues inherited from Mt Rosea
The final access restrictions at Rosea were lifted prior to Easter 2013.
Where the walking track meets the cliff a pad goes off to the right and the base of 'Tourist Buttress' is 30 metres along this pad.
Most routes go to the top of the cliff and descent is by following a rough track south-east along the top until the walking track is reached. This track is then followed to the top of the Giants Staircase. The top of this is often marked with tapes or cairns and is at 37.190150 S, 142.502186 E Apart from an unsightly chain anchor on the first belay of 'Debutante', existing abseil descents have relied on trees. Many of these were severely damaged or died in the fires in 2006 and should be regarded with suspicion.
