450m. "An excellent scramble through magnificent scenery. Start up Number Five Gully, and break out right on the first ledge from the foot of the gully proper. Follow this until it becomes impractical, then take a shallow gully that leads up and slightly left to a higher ledge. Follow the higher ledge to the right passing a large pinnacle block to reach the easy angled crest of the Great Buttress of Carn Dearg by a large cairn. Follow the crest of the buttress to the north-west summit of Carn Dearg." Nisbet, A. et al (2005) Scottish Rock Climbs, Leicester; Scottish Mountaineering Club
