Following a number of climbing parties being found in areas of the Gorge that are outside of the climbing access agreement for this time of year, the BMC has been contacted by the landowner, Cheddar Coves & Gorge, who are concerned that climbers are not taking the access agreement seriously. Please make sure that you are within the agreed open areas if climbing in the Gorge this summer or access for all may be at risk.
By following the access calendar and Cheddar Gorge Climbers Code of Conduct (both linked to in the article), you will be helping to maintain access to a unique and beautiful climbing area for the future.
