About to make the move out on the undercling.


A unique and very worthy line. Can't be missed.

Start on the two lowest slopers down in the cave and move up to the triangular undercling near the lip of the roof. Work your way around the bulge with widely spaced crimps to the top-out.


On the north side of the 'Skye Stone', which is located farther down the trail past the 'Thunder Wall'. It's the impressive boulder that overhangs on nearly every side. 'Skye Dance' will be on the left side of the boulder as you approach it. Look for the funky slopers under the bulge.

A great problem that combines steep huecos, sharp crimps and a relaxed finished.

V6 doesn't get much better than this.

I thought this was a pretty soft V6, especially for the area. I found both Kredulf (V4) and Blood Kin Sit (V4) up in the Druid Stones were harder problems than Skye Dance. Either way though, what a fantastic route.
