An exciting and serious climb. The crux is quite thin re. reliable gear and quite loose in places (creaky flakes indeed!) but not too technical. I clipped the peg, but just to keep the ropes separated!!

1st Pitch good, After that! description hard to follow/not accurate...Chimney??? I don't think so...steepening corner? - I think it is meant to say steepening slab. Other than that, when we finally sussed it out, it was a great route.
hepitt - AltLd - 09/Jun/10 with Rob Pitt

Climbed the top half of the crux pitch only, past the rusty peg runner, on this route by mistake as was climbing Cioch West! Rach led lower half of crux pitch. We had a rather uncomfortable hanging belay between our two pitches.

Lead 2nd pitch. My first multipitch route. Fantastic! Especially when it started to snow and rain on last pitch!
sergio46 - AltLd O/S - 02/May/10 with Tim Clark, Ian Jones

A very good crux pitch. Only Serge's 6th day on rock! The heavens opened before Tim started the crux pitch so well done to both.

Everything went fine at VS until halfway through p3 Jason notices "Errata" in the guide: Crembo is HVS 5a. This scared us to the point that he belayed partway up the crux pitch on rusty peg plus #1 nut. Strangely liberated, I found the rest easy. Led p1, lost track after that. Followed by Cioch Corner & Trophy Crack!
nick everett - AltLd - 1996 with Jason Brookes

Oh my god, the crap piton and obviously abandoned gear hanging from it should have prepared me for the run out. Scarey, but then Si followed in big boots.....
