The left side of Rosea is the area below the Giant's Staircase and moving left from there. Unfortunately the upper sections of the climbs here tend to break down and there can be a lot of dirt and bushes in these parts. This does tend to detract from what are often high quality lower pitches. It is not until the area around The Last Act is reached that the climbing could be said to be good all of the way to the top. Still, there are many great climbing experiences here. You could do a lot worse than setting out to climb all of the Dewhirst/Zielke routes done in 1969-70.
Access issues inherited from Mt Rosea
The final access restrictions at Rosea were lifted prior to Easter 2013.
Head off left at the third hair-pin bend on the walking-track. The route across below the cliffs is currently somewhat overgrown and rough and there is some fallen timber.
Climbs close to 'The Last Act' can abseil down this route either from the terrace at the top of 'Dinosaur Gully' or the very top. Requires 2 x 50m ropes. Alternatively follow the walking track back along the cliff-top to the top of the Giant Staircase which may be marked by tape and/or cairns and is at 37.190150 S, 142.502186 E
