A stunning day at Kyloe © apollo18

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.

Approach 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.

No Access Issues

Access relationships at Kyloe In are currently good, please ensure that they stay that way:

  • Park sensibly  (NU 03532 38979) - don't block the gate or the gate turning area. Park on one side of the road only.
  • Woodland Management will sometimes engage in deerstalking in these woods - it is essential that you only walk along the route described below to get to the crag for safety reasons.
  • No fires
  • Take all litter home including any found at the crag
  • Keep dogs under control. 

Remember, access to Kyloe In is a privilege, not a right and inconsiderate or irresponsible behaviour can lose it. If there are any cases of poor climber behaviour or conflict with the stalker or management, please inform the BMC access team so we can deal with the issue before it gets out of hand.


Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 September to 30 March

Reason: Live Firing

Scottish Woodlands (the landowner of Kyloe In) have confirmed that access is now permitted at all times, regardless of stalking activity at Kyloe-in-the-woods (Kyloe-In).

Occasional restrictions as described will take place because of timber operations. Please follow the restrictions. Scottish Woodlands are very supportive and we don't want to spoil the relationship we have with them.

It is crucial that climbers approach the crag via the track described below and do not deviate from it or the crag. Do not attempt to thrash through the woodland from Kyloe Out.

Some of the lovely trees above the crag no longer upright - guess following the storms earlier this year.

lots (!) of ticks about (early june) - worth taking repellant and doing a thorough check at the end of the day.

Fallen block from Chris's Arete Location of block Don't think it will affect things much, gives bigger ledge to stand on.
