The area left of Tourist Buttress and up the Giant's Staircase along the old walking track has some of the earliest climbs done at Rosea. This does not mean that it is studded with classics, far from it. While the small area around Martin Eden offers a handful of brilliant climbs much of the rest around here is mediocre.
Access issues inherited from Grampians
Please note that due to the fact that the Grampians is a national park, dogs and other pets are not allowed in the park except in vehicles on sealed roads and in sealed car parks. See http://m.parkweb.vic.gov.au/explore/parks/grampians-national-park/safety-and-regulations#overview
Where the walking track hits the cliff it does a final hairpin turn and then climbs left up the Giant's Staircase. A pad moves off right at this point along the cliffline towards the major landmark that is Tourist Buttress, about thirty metres right of where the track meets the cliffs. The climbs in the Giant's Staircase area are described starting on the left side of Tourist Buttress and moving left.
Follow a rough track south-east along the top until the walking track is reached. Follow the track 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
