[A stunning day at Kyloe, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
14m. Fine and exciting climbing through the big roofs. Approach from the right and cross the first overhang to the second one. Undercut past this to reach jugs, then step left and finish up the flutings. A big cam in a pocket above the roof helps - a lot. © ROCKFAX

Still took 3 goes to get the crux on a top rope! Tried to do silly link into Spacewalk with not much luck...

well chuffed to blast this one clean, bit of advice about the move on the headwall, but pretty much without too much beta... need to man up alot to lead this one tho
Woodiee - TR β - 18/Apr/09 with Sam Trefgarne

Wish I'd read the other guidebook! Didn't take a big cam, so after hard cruxy move to the undercut took a serious of large lobs from the headwall. Eventually grovelled my way to the top. Nice moves though all in all...
