Access notes
From Bristol, follow the A4 past the Avon Gorge towards Avonmouth. At the first set of traffic lights, turn right onto Sylvan Way. Carry on util a left turn takes you onto Westbury Lane, and then immediately right onto The Dingle -- a descending lane with a car park at the bottom to the left. A path leads northwards along the valley floor. The cliffs are owned by the Bristol City Council who apparently discourage climbing, but no access problems reported.

Removed some brambles and ivy at the base of Lover's Leap today, which should make a couple of the climbs accessible again. Hopefully more cleaning to follow soon...

A really nice place to climb, spoilt by the c*nting chavs and their arsewipe dogs.
The Pylon King - 23/Mar/12

As of today the Lover's Leap is clean from Rubble Surprise to Smiling at Me and most of the routes have been climbed recently. Elephant rock is clean as well (I think the wardens may be keeping it clean, at least the path at the bottom). Butcher's cave is also clean, any beta on Nypharium Domus would be appreciated!
