2 pitches. start in the slabby bottom section of the gully which heads up right of the cioch and then behind it (right of cioch direct and cioch west).
up slabs easily for a long way
trend left easily up gully behind the cioch (crack of doom above)
climb tunnel slot formed by large block- entertaining and often wet!
next climb up with short layback to reach the cioch terrace (below integrity)

Moved together over wet lower slabs in approach shoes & changed to rock boots for infamous slot, which while a struggle had more gear than expected. Very very wet. Off route on final pitch up a series of overhangs rightwards along terrace (VS?) and then traverse across to Cioch.

Interesting and esoteric. Climbed in boots because my feet were cold. Patches of dry and warm rock, verglas, snow and running water. Some hard obstacles, thrutching and hauling up, swearing and sweating and some sublime climbing too. Fine positions. Finished on the Cioch. Brilliant.

Done mostly in boots as scramble to start with. Changed to rock shoes for the last chimney but soaking wet and mossy so slipped off. A hard push to get up then a wee scamble in the snow, then realised we'd gone too high so had to traverse over to the Cioch.

Abseiled down the gully as an escape from Cioch West
