Cone below!



Early November and it's a day out at Kyloe(nly) - just me and NB the whole day.  Bright sun gave way to a brief shower but the rock stayed mostly dry for a series of regulation routes all done in good order.

It's a peaceful place - carpets of pine, birds twitter, bongs ting like cowbells, and carefree climbers call  "Cone below"! 

NB took wing up and down and up Bird Lime Crack - a fine Severe, but about as mild as a Madras. Finished the day in the gathering gloom with a sprint up Saint's Progress - a perfect wire where it really mattered.  Another day stolen from the fickle late season weather Gods.
