215m, 7 pitches. P1-There are 2 spike belays, one @ 40m and one @ 50m
The Off-width description on p2 is mis-leading. A better description is- "P2 Continue up the groove for 20m to reach a huge flake on the RHS. Traverse up and right across the face of the flake (bold) to reach blocks in the crevasse above. Easily traverse 10m right to a grassy ledge.
P4- After the crux traverse it saves a lot of contortions to continue above the ledge up the steep wall mentioned as the start of P5. A good alloy peg (in situ) is well placed to allow belaying back in view of the crux.
Followed completely the route ends on the Cioch by Cioch Nose rte. Those wanting to climb Arrow Route should traverse left (30m) after the long easy section of scrambling described as a variation to p7

A lovely route with some degree of exposure and some thought provoking moves and tricky route finding. My advice is to ignore the guide book description as it's pretty much hopeless after pitch one and follow what polish there is and you'll have a great time.

Final pitch with slight overhang which David ended up having to lead. Having followed his footwork, would probably be able to lead this pitch in future.

with Laura Goble
CathS 05/Jun/13 AltLd O/S

Led P2, P4 (crux) and P6. Went straight up the steep wall onto the right hand end of the ledge at the top of P4, which felt harder than 4a with tiny holds and a mantelshelf top out - possibly should have taken more of a rising hand traverse which apparently has a big jug at the end of it. Very exciting though! Start of P7 felt tough for the grade and the route-finding throughout is quite adventurous. Climbed with big rucksacks and finished in baking hot evening sun. One of the best routes I've climbed, as much for the setting as anything else.

GREAT ROUTE. Beautiful views, nice easy but interesting climbing with lots of gear - definitely worth doing if you fancy a relaxing picturesque day out. 215/240m route (depending on guide) of 8 pitches. I did the first, Adam did 2nd and alternated from there. Mostly easy with some interesting and optional hand jams. Nothing scary and some pitches are just scrambling. Best bit was where I lead up onto the ledge by accident instead of the hand traverse, very interesting corner crack with a mantle onto a sloping foot deep ledge (same ledge as hand traverse puts you onto)

The traverse about half way up was very exciting! Much relief when reaching belay ledge. This route deserves more than one star and I think is hard vd if not s.

We got one pitch up and the heavens opened! I believe the cioch was up there somewhere, but we couldn't see it, even at the top of the climb. And we couldn't find the descent path, so abbed off...through a waterfall. And then the rope got stuck. That was the best weather we had that week. The following night the tent got blown down!

Our first attempt at multi pitch climb came unstuck amidst the mysteries of how are you supposed to do this. Retreated after much faffing.
