Rockfax Description
The true line of the route 'Easter Island' as climbed by Ed Ward-Drummond in 1972. It is still a bit escapable but does give better and more sustained climbing than the common modern version now renamed 'Easter Edge'. From the gearing-up ledge above the river, pull onto the right face and climb the arete as closely as possible until a diagonal crack. Swing up this and make rapid moves up a crack to gain the upper groove. Follow this in a majestic position, moving left of the final roof. © Rockfax

βeta: Brilliant. This needs adding to the Extreme Rock ticklist and Easter Edge taking off it.

βeta: Confused...this route now seems to cover most of The White Edge (E3 6a) at E2 5c... You've created an excellent route, it's just pretty hard E3 5c IMO. Beta...tat on the first peg needs replacing and the second peg is shite!
