Biblins CaveGloucestershire, ENGLAND
Climbs 30 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 107m a.s.l – Faces SW
Natural England have been great to work with in unbanning the cave for bouldering here, however there are many RULES THAT MUST BE STUCK TO, or the cave will be banned again almost instantly.
1.Bouldering only! No gear, no routes, no bolts, no top roping.
2. No removal of any vegetation no matter how minimal, with no exceptions what so ever. This is a nature conservation site and an SSSI (site of special scientific interest) so although a plant or tree may look ordinary, some of them are the only know locations in the country.
3.Only allowed to climb from May - September each year because of possible hibernating bats. There are no bats currently present in the cave but if you see any please report to crag moderator immediately.
4. Stick to the paths (see access details), no cutting corners or walking off on tangents. Try and avoid stepping on plants or ferns, or snapping twigs off trees.
5. Stick to the cave area and walls either side, as this is the only area unbanned, do not climb in Arthurs Cave which is a tourist attraction about 500m from this cave.
6.General bouldering rules e.g. don't drop litter etc. http://www.climbingworks.com/files/public/Green_Agenda/10commandments_poster.pdf
Park as for Doward Campsite car park. DO NOT DRIVE DOWN TO BIBLINS CAMPSITE, PARK AND WALK PAST GREEN BARIER. DO NOT DRIVE PAST GREEN BARRIER. Walk downhill past a low barrier and then straight into the woods. Go down past the quarry on the right, keep going down in till the main path goes off right, and you will see a slightly rocky path in front of you, follow this down until you reach some limestone "steps", scramble down and you will be there.
DO NOT VEAR FROM PATH OR REMOVE ANY VEGITATION!
