Restricted Access

The north side of the Gorge is predominantly owned by the National Trust and mapped as Open Access land under the CRoW Act which give a right of access for climbers to use these crags all year. The Cheddar Gorge Access Map gives full details of climbing access throughout the Gorge.

The mapo references the latest guide to the Gorge - 'Cheddar Gorge Climbs' (M. Crocker, 2015), which has details of the popular crags on the north side and definitive details of restored routes on the south side. It is available from The Gorge Outdoors shop in Cheddar village, as well as other climbing and outdoor shops in the area.

Seasonal Restrictions

Reason: Nesting Birds

Dogs should be kept under control on a lead at any crags on the north side of the Gorge.

The National Trust require any new bolting to be cleared with them first - please contact the BMC Access Team if you are considering any bolting work and so we can help in any approach to the Trust.

9m. Fallingwater (Infra-Rage)

Start on the boss below and right of the padlocked bolt. A heinous 8A boulder sees you at a big undercut. Pump up the power and make more hard bouldery moves to a good sidepull. Head up and right to join Ultra-Violence after the 4th bolt. Climbs far better than it looks.

Bolted in 2007 by Ally Smith and Fred Mead, also known as 'Infra-Rage'.

Ellis Butler-Barker May/2015.
