87 m to the east of Ravenscliff Gully and 66 m west of Watch House Slab, the obvious feature of White Edge can be seen well above sea level.


1. South East Ridge 35m VDiff *

Good positions. There are a couple of rickety sections that would scare beginners. It can be started down by sea level but, the bottom is nothing more than scrambling, so start at the base of the obvious upper ridge. Keep left of the arête when it is not possible to climb direct.

2. Early Orchid 35m VDiff

Starts 3 meters to the right of South East Ridge on the East Face. Climb the slightly diagonal groove to a ledge at two-thirds height. Continue straight up to the top.
