Avon Gorge (Main Area)

Climbs 89 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 45m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Slabby, easy angled lime stone, lots of excellent routes in the easier grades, but protection tends to be sparse, and many of the plum lines suffer from polish. Some of the best bouldering in the area can be had here. Multi-pitch routes to 90 metres.

Access notes
Park at Main Wall and walk, or in Clifton and walk down the zig-zags near Bridge Valley Road.
