More like 200 metres. Got off route drifting left of centre to some good protected mixed climbing at half height. Below that the heather turf climbing is sparsely protected and not fully frozen yet.

Lots of wet snow, luckily with frozen turf underneath where you needed it.
Shaw Brown - AltLd - 26/Dec/09 with cliff brown

We climbed some 70m to reach the tree, then another 70m with easier run out above. Turf was frozen but ther is a lot of heather which was less comforting. Above the chimney we went up the left edge, exposed above Little Gully
