/ Avon and Cheddar
Just a quick question, when is the best time of year to climb in Avon or Cheddar/ when does the season really start? Is it warm enough in Feb/Mar or is it better to wait until May/June?
All year if you choose the right crag/weather.
Make sure you are aware of the access arrangements if you climb there (see the BMC regional access database or refer to the guidance in Martin Crocker's 2009 Cheddar Gorge Climbs).
is 31st March the last day for Coronation Street? I really must get on it this year :)
And avon can be a real sun trap and ace winter venue. I've climbed in a t-shirt in December and early March. It also dries freakishly fast :) and few routes suffer from seepage.
