150m. Will probably be IV if Hell's Wall is taken direct or if snow cover is thin.

Plungeman 23 Nov, 2013 AltLd O/S Followed one of Cameron's lecturers up who was out to climb curved ridge, only checked the guise when we topped out after a suspiciously hard crux. Soloed everything but the crux and only got the axes out to finish up the chimneys of curved ridge! A grand mountaineering day out to start the season.

thomasaneurinsmith 2 Dec, 2010 AltLd dnf Almost got to the top, then realised we were not on curved ridge!! haha - then, not knowing exactly where we were (only having Scottish Winter Climbs with us) we abseiled down the whole thing. Little did we know we were nearly at the top! :(

ladislav 9 Jan, 2010 AltLd dnf Went to climb Curved Ridge and got confused in the mist. Realised our mistake when we got stuck on the crux, by which time it was nearly 4pm. Abseiled off in the dark, then had to run back to the hostel before they locked the doors at midnight! Fortunately we met another party in the same situation, and were able to tie our ropes together to do full 60m abseils. Conditions were very cold (-12C) and the snow was thin and unconsolidated. Total horrorshow.

Tom Stoddart 1 Mar, 2007 Lead Had previously tried this climb accidentally, thinking we were on Curved Ridge. Great day out this time: the crux slab was delicate and poorly protected, the weather changed from blue skies to blizzards, and we walked off in the dark. Massive sense of achievement.
