An excellent and very exposed route that girdles The Cioch, starting up high in the gully on the left of the block. From the gully, follow a thin break to the arete and continue on to the face to a belay ledge. Climb rightwards from the belay and stand on the "spike", then reverse mantel it (don't try to figure out what is holding it on the face). From here, fingertip traverse right with decent protection to finish just left of the arete.
