Nathan Adam 09/Aug/17 AltLd O/S

5a for the second pitch seems fair, easier if you are tall and can traverse right lower perhaps? Definitely harder than 4b for the first few meters up the 3rd pitch crack.

masa-alpin 09/Aug/17 AltLd O/S

Nathan lead P1, 3 (the groove), 5, and I lead P2 (crux slab) and P4 (to the green ledge). I found the traverse in P2 was hard and a fair amount (diagonally)above the gear, but possibly because the traverse line I chose wasn't the best one. P3 (corner crack) was graded as 4b (both the SMC definitive and selective) or 4a (Latter's yellow book); but we found no way! In my seconding I found there were 3 x 5a moves. Solid HVS on its own.

Steve Perry 24/Jul/17 Lead O/S

Good route, P2 is really cool, loved the bold steps right and pull onto the slab beneath the corner pitch.. SMC guide gave a good route description.

Second pitch is quite full on technical climbing, really absorbing.

Skipped the 5a moves by briefly moving into Cioch direct as I was still feeling a bit jittery about soloing. First route on link up of Cioch buttresses.

Nice route, hard to understand route description after the crux pitch. finished through cioch direct I guess. Nice route anyway.

Led P1 and 3. Major hot aches on pitch 1!

Ian Jones 20/Apr/14 2nd O/S

Felt very hard after long lay off. Good lead by Tim. Am I the only one who thinks the crux pitch is a bit silly?

A good climb for the lower tier but a bit close to Cioch Direct.

Bailed on to Cioch Direct after second pitch, think I might have tried Direct as well.

2nd Pitch... very committing feel, but good climbing all round.

Fantastic rock. P2 had some pretty bold (but good) sequences on it.

Got a bit lost on the first pitch and ended up belaying half way up the slab having traversed a long way left. The crux is surely 5a (not 5b as in Scottish Rock) but a bit bold, and the 4b crack above is a lot like 4c. An excellent route.

Lead, seconded, soloed. One of the finest routes of its grade in the UK. 3 lovely varied pitches
