Rockfax Description
The climbing starts at a small rib just right of the tree, and has the name CILBER written on the rock in red.
1) 5a, 28m. Climb a rib, trending slightly rightwards to the first bolt, then up the buttress, passing a small roof to a good stance.
2) 5c, 15m. Continue up the slanting crack splitting the wall (4 bolts) then head leftwards past the Arete to a stance.
3) 4a, 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) 4c, 40m. Climb up the steep corner/groove (bolts) and then continue more easily to a finish up the right Arete leading to a big flat ledge.
This is the end of the bolted climbing section.
6) Walk along the ridge to a steep wall with a tree.
7) Pass the steep wall section by scrambling down to the right and then back up to the ridge (this steep section can be taken direct at 5a ).
8) The ridge now becomes steeper and narrower.
9) Scramble up the crest to the summit.
10) More scrambling along the ridge leads to TV masts and the start of an easy path that leads back to the start of the route. © Rockfax

Lead p2 & 4. Soloed the Ridge. A very enjoyable day our although we went wrong at the first pitch following a line of bolts to the right and belaying too early. Think there is a mistake in the guidebook as the actually belay was more like 45 meters up instead of 28. (the paint at the bottom of the route said p1 was a 45m 4+ too) P2 and p5 were the highlights.

Did Cilber at the start - 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! The ridge itself was great fun - the narrow bit was pretty airey but there are a few bits to put some gear in if you're moving together on the rope as we were.

Cilber was a beautiful climb. Me: P1, P3, P5. Neil: P2, P4. Route finding slightly tricky in places but our belays were slick and efficient. Knocked out the climb in 1h30. Moved together roped up (first time for me) over the narrow sections of the ridge.
