95m. The obvious gully separating the Garadh from Tower ridge, which can be clearly seen from the CIC hut.

In lean or early season conditions it can give two good ice pitches of around grade III standard, later on it can bank out into a steep snow slope. A good climb for a short day, or it can be used as an approach to higher climbs.

The climb is around 4 pitches long, the guidebook length is rather short!
