This covers the cliffs encountered on the walking track after reaching the top of the Giant's Staircase. At this stage this includes the area known as Gate of The East Wind as well as the very summit. None of this has been checked as yet but, despite the great situation the climbing doesn't sound good. Location:
Access issues inherited from Mt Rosea
The final access restrictions at Rosea were lifted prior to Easter 2013.
These climbs can be approached by following the standard tourist track but it is assumed that the usual approach will be up the Giant's Staircase. Gate Of The East Wind is located 300-400m past the top of the Giant Stairway on the walking track. It is a deep, cool cleft. The track crosses the cleft over huge boulders with a metal hand rail. Access the cliff by walking right after the hand rail (away from the cliff) and into the gully. Summit Cliff : About 50 metres right (facing out) from the summit lookout is a southeast-facing grey wall about 30 metres high, distinguished by a couple of horizontal roof lines reminiscent of Bundaleer. Reach this by walking about 100 metres right (looking out) along the cliff top to a broad gully and abseil tree (?) from where a 25 metre abseil gains a broad vegetated terrace. Walk back left to the base of the wall.
