Kyloe Crag (Kyloe Out)

Climbs 144 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 115m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
One of Northumberland's finest crags. Good routes are evenly spread throughout the grades, except at the very top and bottom ends. Bouldering is less extensive than in the Woods, but there are some excellent problems.

Access notes
Turn off the A1 at Fenwick and head towards Lowick. Turn left at the cross roads before Lowick. The crag can be seen on the left. Park considerately near the gate and follow the track to the crag.
