Climbs at this crag
Situated about eight miles SW of Bristol, just beyond the village of Cleeve on the A370. From Bristol, turn east along Cleeve Hill Road just before the Lord Nelson Inn. Carry on for about
400 metres until you reach a small car park by a quarried wall. A small track leads into the Combe itself from a small building to the left of the quarry.

Pulled a hold of Mithril a few days ago, it's marginally harder but not enough to change the grade.

Really excellent crag and a much higher quality of climbing than the star distribution would suggest. Though the tick infestation is severe!

A reminder to watch out for ticks, I have picked up at least one on three out of four trips here in the last couple of years. Do do a thorough check when you get home!

Don't leave anything of value in your car as it has been known for the local scumbags to break in to them for a rummage!

Beware of ticks. Nasty little baggers which can quickly turn a day of climbing into chimpanzee level and style of grooming. Make sure you have long sleeves and trousers or a decent repellent. (if they work on ticks!?!)

Gift Tolkien has a roosting barn owl at the top in cracks in the wall. Maybe think twice about disturbing!!
