Topic - Wye Valley loose rock

dave frost - on 09 Jan 2013
Hiya folks,

So just to add to the posts about the cliffs i thought i would add to it with a warning to be carefull around the Lower Wye.

Out last weekend my partner and I came across a huge rock fall from the right hand side of GO wall (the pedastal area). It looks like the bottom few meters of Perfumed Garden has come down. It was a lot of rock, left a dozen or so oven sized boulders near the pedastal and a load of scree had fallen down to the base of GO wall.

North wall was suffering and we chucked a load of rocks off routes, and more will come down. Stuff seems to be getting pretty loose after so much rain.

I would also suggest care with somewhere like wyndcliff which can be a bit snappy anyway.

I would stay away from Tintern Quarry.

Cheers
Dave
