150m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Despite some grotty terrain, this is a worthwhile route, and well equipped where it matters. Start right of a groove and rib.
1) 5, 28m. Climb a rib, trending slightly rightwards to the first bolt, then up the buttress, passing a small roof to a good stance.
2) 5+, 15m. Continue up the slanting crack splitting the wall (4 bolts) then head leftwards past the Arete to a stance.
3) 4, 25m. Straight up slabby rock, passing ledges to a bay.
4) 3, 25m. A scrappy pitch. Climb to a ledge at 5m, then trend left (red arrows) to a stance below a groove.
5) 4+, 40m. Up the steep corner/groove (bolts) and then continue more easily to a finish up the right Arete.
Descent - Traverse 40m east (red arrows) to the notch. Scramble down 30m a tree on Lofi - abseil down this. © Rockfax

Lovely climbing, every time you lift your arm it hits a jug. Hardest pitch was the final wall grade 4.

Went completely wrong on the second pitch and ended up on the adjacent route and had to reverse it. Better discription for the second pitch would be follow the steep crack and then traverse out left or something to that effect.... fun route and a worthwhile outing!

Lead all pitches. Split the 5th into two. The 5c pitch is short lived but fun. Start of the 5th is quite technical and worth a 5a/b I reckon. A great route overall.

Great rock and climbing for the grades. We ran pitches together to do the whole thing in 3 pitches. Doing the ridge to the summit was amazing at sunset. L. 5, 5+, 4+

Really nice climb but very vauge ending. There are two lines in the corner that the topo directs you to - I did the one right in the corner which was a bit short on bolts and felt harder than 4+. I then couldn't see the next bolts so soloed quite a long way, finally found another bolt after some 'exciting' positions! Did this as a prelude to the ridge.

2nd time up this route and along the ridge. Did this as our first route of the holiday and its great fun. 2nd pitch is probably crux but the corner and above at the top is the highlight.

Not signed on second pitch, strayed too far right onto an unlisted route (it appears there are at least two unlisted routes between Cilber and Ruwa). Like @bobstones we traversed back onto the correct route and was generally signed from there. Try to stay as left as possible on the second pitch. On the descent, after the 30m scramble to the tree, the first ab point under the tree and is the lower-off for 'Lofi'.

Went wrong on pitch 2 as didn't check the guidebook.......stoopid!! Followed the groove right to an awful traverse under a roof then found ourselves on a ledge near to Ruwa. Tried to rectify the day by traversing the ledge and climbed the 3rd pitch on Oma Sus (fairly sketchy traverse) which didn't ease the mind so bailed and abbed off. All good experience but not how I would have planned my last days climbing of 2015!
