Cheddar Gorge North

Climbs 370 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
Sunshine until mid-afternoon (Pride Evans Cliff is to low down to see the sun in mid-winter). Mostly hard and steep climbing. Mixture of sport and trad.

Collection of small crags on the North side of the gorge near the village. Lion Rock, Pride Evans Cave, and The Remnant.

All feature mostly hard and steep climbing and a mixture of sport and trad.

Approach notes
Climbing is allowed year round on most cliffs on the North side though the access situation is sensitive, due to the high visibility of these crags and the risk of stones being dislodged.

Don't approach The Remnant from the car park directly below - follow the path from Lion Rock.

Avoid Prospect Tier and the bay to its right during summer.

Check online with the BMC regional access database.

James Moyle - 14/Jun/09
Cycled past this today (5th july) and theres been a big rockfall. Seems to have taken out a lot of the right hand side of the wall. Probably safest to leave the entire thing alone untill it gets cleaned up.
