300m. A very enjoyable winter scramble, slightly harder if the steep initial section is taken directly, but this is easily avoidable.

The easiest approach from the road is now via the east bank of the Allt na h-Uamha, fording it at the northern edge of the first plantation in order to join the track heading north.

Francis Hardy 30 Dec, 2017 Lead Fun route. Conditions were good and we moved together in 2 pairs, trying to stick to the steepest sections. Came of the top in a white out with strong winds. The light failed just as we came out from under the clouds and were greeted by a spectacular moonlit landscape. One of the most beautiful sights I've seen and bright enough under the full moon not to need head-torches - stunning!

lithos 18 Feb, 2012 - Wild, crawling along some sections, we played making it hard at start and then got a shift on, no cornice where ridge meets top. bearings off top in gusty conditions. Will's feet trashed by new boots ! Safe in avalanchey conditions

timday 11 Feb, 2012 Solo O/S Warm day; walked up in soft snow with one axe. Crampons/rope/gubbins all stayed in the pack (although glad of semi-frozen turf in places). Nice route; would revisit in "proper" winter conditions.

Fiona Reid 12 Feb, 2011 Solo O/S Took the direct start and stayed on the ridge for most of the route, rope remained in the rucksack as any difficulties were short lived. It seemed to be a popular route choice given the conditions. Many thanks to the Roddie brothers for breaking trail for everyone!
