900m. The longest climb in the Cuillin is one of the best routes I've done and can't wait to do it again. The route has obviously been very popular and is well cleaned & well warn but still difficult to follow mainly because the descents look very improbable. We felt we had cheated by abseiling the 2 main chimneys. Took us 5 hours in perfect weather. We did a combination of moving together and short pitches. A single rope and a small rack of cams was pretty ideal. Abseil tat also recommended. I had time to make description in new 2011 guidebook accurate.

Took about 1 1/2hrs. The abseil sections can be downclimbed at the grade.

Superb. Took six hours. We abseiled in two places. We went too far on the Serpentine Chimney abseil and had to climb back up. It rained briefly when we got to The Amphitheatre but dried up quickly.
