VIC Grampians Central Mt Rosea (General) [ Rosea Guide | Images ] 

climbing Mt Rosea Grampians
1:44:54 AM
I'm coming from the States to Australia for a couple of weeks so need to pack lightly--are 2 60 m ropes
needed to rap off multi-pitch routes on Mt Rosea? Or can you get off the routes w/ a single 70 m rope? I
imagine a full rack is recommended? We were thinking about Heretic and Debutante as routes to climb.
Any recommendations for others? THX

If you pick routes that go to the top of the cliff (which Heretic and Debutante do) you really only need a single 50 and walk down. There aren't many rap stations on the whole cliff. You will want a full rack, a helmet won't go astray (there have been some big rock falls there recently) and any route at your grade with multiple stars will be awesome. It is very much a trad cliff, be prepared to do a bit of route finding, very few routes have fixed gear and maybe deal with some bodgy rock and you might appreciate starting out on something below your limit. At this time of year it's coming into the shade very early in afternoon which can make it rather chilly to get caught out on the top pitches in a tshirt. Enjoy!

The abseils down the left end require 2x50m ropes as minimum, however you can scramble out and walk down. I would definitely recommend Bubbles/Dinosaur Gully Df down that way. Good start, just OK in the mid-section and outrageous finish. However do Debutante and Heretic first.

Thanks for the beta!

Also note that the select guide is 10 years old and some details have changed.
The ACA Rosea guide has all routes at Rosea including the state of initials at the base of climbs.
