Rockfax Description
Excellent but harrowing at the grade. Traverse the wall left and climb the crack right of the arete. Move left to the chimney/crack of Cioch Crack and escape right at its top. © Rockfax

Decent route, bold but decent small cam in left wall of chimney helps.

very enjoyable, hard (for the grade) couple of first moves, then very steady. not really harrowing at any point as guidebook suggests.

topped out between the 'paps' on Cioch Crack by mistake. Thought it was a bit stiff for a S 4a...

Unless you have a size 10 friend, this route has no gear apart from a small wire near the bottom. Still, its quite good fun though.
