Good moves, delicate crux.

Skipped the 5a moves by briefly moving into Cioch direct as I was still feeling a bit jittery about soloing. First route on link up of Cioch buttresses.

Grimpzen 28/May AltLd

Nice route, hard to understand route description after the crux pitch. finished through cioch direct I guess. Nice route anyway.

Led P1 and 3. Major hot aches on pitch 1!

Felt very hard after long lay off. Good lead by Tim. Am I the only one who thinks the crux pitch is a bit silly?

A good climb for the lower tier but a bit close to Cioch Direct.

with Colin M
Brannock 12/Jun/12 Lead

Bailed on to Cioch Direct after second pitch, think I might have tried Direct as well.

Fantastic rock. P2 had some pretty bold (but good) sequences on it.

Struggled on lower crack resulting in undignified moves. Lovely delicate stuff higher up

Got a bit lost on the first pitch and ended up belaying half way up the slab having traversed a long way left. The crux is surely 5a (not 5b as in Scottish Rock) but a bit bold, and the 4b crack above is a lot like 4c. An excellent route.

Got lost after pitch 3, and then it tipped it down, escaped up something to the terrace and made our way home through the pouring rain and mist.

Somehow managed to not see the traverse and go straight up the steep crack instead.
