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

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.
