    Some older F.A.’s from the White Wall area.

    West Cape Howe Earl Grey Wall(White Wall)
    These climbs are on the narrow easier angled
    wall between the Zawns in the White Wall area.
    It is prone to water seepage in winter. All bolts
    require bolt plates.

    “Io” gr16 25m
    Starts on right side of wall on a ledge 20m
    down.
    Up the slab then over the bulges using B.R.’s
    then a flaky corner left of overlap using natural pro.
    If the swell is low you can start lower down the wall.

    Up and left to first B.R. then up past another
    4 and into corner and gully above. 5 B.R.’s
    and natural pro.
