Description Suggest change

The Stairs of Cirith Ungol (5.8+) - optional P3 variation on the guide route. Find it directly in front of the top out after P2.
Climb the dirty chimney / roof crack up and around into easier climbing above. The route kind of wanders after the fun start. Top out on top of the tower like usual.

I asked around the community and nobody knows the name of this climb, so adding it here. Would like to get some consensus on the grade so give it a whirl and let me know what you think.

A #4 would be nice to have on this pitch for the wide section.
