  <header access="Teardrop Gully comprises two sections, the gully below Step Tier (Lower Teardrop Gully), and the gully above Step Tier (Upper Teardrop Gully). Access to most of the Lower Teardrop Gully has traditionally been from the bottom, scrambling up to the left of Summertime Buttress. However, this is now heavily vegetated and involves considerable bush bashing!&lt;br/&gt;Currently the best way to access climbs in Upper Teardrop Gully is from the summit carpark. From the Lookout Shelter head down and across the screes (see topo in the guide Introduction) heading in the general direction of the northern tip of Bruny Island. After several hundred metres look for the rusty pipe and cairn that mark the top of the gully (GPS MTW180). Alternatively head down the fence line from the television tower, and then head towards Constitution Dock from the bottom of the fence. Either way finding the top of the gully can be difficult if you&apos;ve never been there. The most common mistake is to find yourself too far south at the top of Avalanche Couloir, which looks similar from above.  " acknowledgement="" history="" intro="Teardrop Gully has some good cragging in the shade, on several distinct buttresses. The first bolted routes on the Pipes were done here in the early nineties, and the area has continued to produce some good sport and mixed routes. The cliffs are described roughly L to R, which is from the bottom of the gully to the top." name="Teardrop Gully" rock="Single pitch dolerite buttresses, quite a few sport routes" sun="Not much sun" walk="15 min down from the summit" id="1" camping="" autonumber="true"/>
  <text class="heading2" id="25">Lower Teardrop Gully</text>
  <text class="text" id="26">This section offers some quality routes on steep buttresses.</text>
  <text class="text" id="27">Access to the lower gully is by heading straight up the Bulging Buttress track towards Cracked Pepper and branching off right where the path splits, traversing through to the grassy gully below a bit of a waterfall. For Farewell to Arms etc, scramble and bush bash 60m up scrubby corners and vegetated ledges left of Summertime Buttress.&lt;br/&gt;Descent: abseil (tape) off blocks on top of the buttresses. Abseiling back down the waterfall and gully line itself is not recommended nor is down climbing the often wet and slippery rocks.</text>
