Been a recent significant rockfall at the end of the first traverse just prior to entering Eastern Gully. Impassable, unless you play with your life. A groove up and right (cutting off up the slab before Eastern Gully) looked nice - but I was soloing, so retraced steps instead... Damn!!

A wet day with a wee dram of hypothermia for Neil, thankfully the Slig fire dried us all out

Enjoyed the athletic wriggle. Took the Cioch slab corner variation to the Chioch before continuing up the upper arete to rejoin the route.

Started late but got to the top of the Cioch eventually (thanks to Mike [skyguides] for advice on how best to do the route)... The final traverse along the polished neck was quite scary!

An epic! on a Mod route? Loads of obvious lessons to be learnt but the one positive one is where would we be without friends looking out for us? Cheers Guys.

Got a bit off route, and then the rain started. Backed off from 7m from the ledge in bad weather.

Up and down in damp mist, had to go a cheval along the ridge to the cioch, quite scary in the wet.

Soloed the traverse, then Oli led a pitch to avoid the verglassed ledge to reach the terrace. I led into Eastern Gully alpine style (with some interest due to snow), where we were repelled by an ice fall and terminal verglas on the traverse back to the Cioch. An entertaining outing nonetheless.

Repelled by ice and verglas. Abbed down the gully.
