This crag has some of the best bouldering in Northumberland, as well as many fine routes. In recent years as bouldering has grown in popularity many of the routes have become vegetated, but that has no impact on the boulder problems.

Due to the steepness of the rock, even on fairly damp winter days you can have a great bouldering session here.

Getting There 

From the A1 5 miles north of Belford, turn west and follow the B6353 for 2 miles towards Lowick. At the crossroads turn south and continue past the parking for Kyloe Crag for half a mile where a gated forest road leads into the woods.

Pass through the gate and head up the track into the forest for about 550 yards. Pass a red and white sign on the right and continue for 1/4 mile to a crossroads, take a right and the crag is soon reached.

Make sure you abide by the notices that get posted at the gate. If the wood says that it is closed due to hunting don't enter - your life will be at risk.
