Started late but got to the top of the Cioch eventually (thanks to Mike [skyguides] for advice on how best to do the route)... The final traverse along the polished neck was quite scary!

An epic! on a Mod route? Loads of obvious lessons to be learnt but the one positive one is where would we be without friends looking out for us? Cheers Guys.

Up and down in damp mist, had to go a cheval along the ridge to the cioch, quite scary in the wet.

Soloed the traverse, then Oli led a pitch to avoid the verglassed ledge to reach the terrace. I led into Eastern Gully alpine style (with some interest due to snow), where we were repelled by an ice fall and terminal verglas on the traverse back to the Cioch. An entertaining outing nonetheless.

Repelled by ice and verglas. Abbed down the gully.
