Crag features

Quarried limestone, generally sound. Protection often poor. Plenty of multi-starred classics if you've got the bottle. Multi-pitch routes to 80 metres.

Approach notes

Park below. Descent: either by scrambling down a "path" to the left (when facing the crag) or by walking along the cliff top to the right (towards Bristol City Centre), turning right down the zig-zags just before Bridge Valeey Road.
