p1 15m 4a: Scramble right to left on the first ledge to reach the nice corner crack. Follow this to the first ledge and make an anchor above the prickly pear
p2 25m 5a: Climb up and right to access the rightwards traverse under the Tennessee-shaped block. Move right through the traverse (crux) and turn the corner to find a belay at a good stance.
p3 50m 4b: Climb broken rock up towards the roofs. Move first left under the roofs, then climb over the roof and traverse right until you find trustworthy rock (basically back above the belay). From here move straight up until you can access a lower-angle gully system. Continue up the gully unit you find good rock for a belay. **
**(This pitch has questionable rock on it, and there may be a better p3 by continuing to traverse out and left)
p4 15m (-): Continue up the gully until you reach the broad grassy ledge at the top of the Cioch.
Descent: Follow cairns off the top fo the formation east back to the road.
