This once quarried outcrop is situated where the track from Velvet Bottom joins the National Trust part of the Gorge and is best reached by following the track from Black Rock Gate at the top of Cheddar Gorge.Although loose it is worth the walk.There are several bolts at the top of the crag(without hangers).

Worth a short visit for Black Rock Corner (tough move at the start but mostly solid rock) but the other HVSs look a bit adventurous due to massive loose blocks...
