Avon Gorge (Sea Walls)

Climbs 267 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 29m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Quarried limestone, generally sound. Protection tends to be sparse. Wall is a real sun trap allowing for year-round climbing. Mainly multi-pitch routes up to about 90 metres. In the summer, escape up to the Downs and the waiting ice cream van.

Access notes
Either scramble down from the Downs, or park the car at the car park at the bottom of Sea Walls, straight off the A4. There have been problems in the past with travellers residing in the car park stealing gear and vandalising cars.
