Avon Gorge (Amphitheatre) Avon, ENGLAND
Climbs 82 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces W
Solid limestone, sparsely protected, multi-pitch routes to 85 metres. Try the atmospheric and photogenic "Giant's Cave Buttress ***VS", stiff and exposed for the grade, but totally outstanding. Just don't veer too far to the right at the top, unless you're happy on E3 6b.
Scramble up directly from the A4 just after the tunnel by the suspension bridge, or walk from the main wall car park.

Seems to be a number of people living under Harveys Wall. Thought at first they were alternatives to mats, but then the duvets started to move. Don't appear to be climbers!|

Approach is full of nettles & brambles. Long trousers would be a good idea. I wore shorts & open sandles! Giants Cave Buttress is awesome. First pitch is excellent, middle pitch is a bit scrappy & the final pitch is extremely good with awesome exposure from the belay all the way to the top.

If anybody is looking for Gollums Cave, it is there!!! Look around at the top in the woodland and you will find it. I looked for ages on the net and there are no descriptions - probally because its small, smells and generally a pretty poor bouldering spot but it does have a few steep fun problems. A small urban boulder spot in the Avon George left of the Clifton Suspension Brige.
