Croscombe Valley Cliffs

Climbs 47 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces W

Crag features
Unexpected pocketed limestone, unlike any in the area and more like that found on the continent than in Cheddar. Nice bouldering (and soloing/leading for those that like mossy and muddy top-outs). A bit more mileage will chase the choss from the rocks. Great for an afternoons bouldering, and in a lovely, quiet, wooded location. Kyloe-in-the-Woods meets Sardinia's Pietro Filosofale. Get down there!

Access notes
No restrictions, but the crag overlooks a footpath so be conscientious.

They are bouldering traverses so Martin gave them sport grades (like the one at Wyndcliff)

There seem to be a couple of routes with sport grades. I assume there's no bolts here. They should be trad grades, surely.

Do you have more up to date information?
