 Formerly known as the South Ridge, renamed in honour of Sir Ed (who was part of the first ascent party) in August 2011. From the Noeline Glacier ascend to Endeavour Col (beware of rockfall – an alternative approach lies over Nazomi). Then ascend both the first and second steps on the east side. The third, crux step can be climbed direct. The rock is generally very loose. Then follow a classic arête to the summit.
