[First Ascent of Original Sin at Kyloe Out around 77 or 78, 1 kb]A fine route - varied and technical. Climb to a standing position on the flake, then continue left and right by a tricky mantelshelf. Reachy moves gain easy ground. © ROCKFAX

Took a few goes at the initial moves, the hardest part is definately the bottom but the mantle is scary! Wonderful line :D

It started to rain. That's my excuse - but i wasn't happy with what i managed to arrange in the break, tried the move up but wimped so i down climbed, just!
Dave Warburton - Lead dnf - 18/Oct/09 with Alain (LUUMC)

Oh dear, bit of a sad attempt with much resting and resorting to a top rope! Not my kind of moves, desperate rock overs on sandy crimps...
