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.

15m. Starting as for ‘Three Pounds Per Tonne’ move up and step right to the first bolt runner. Climb directly up a small tricky groove-let to find a hidden bucket then surmount the final prominent bulge fairly easily. Easier (F5) if you start (more logically) from the large ledge and use holds on the right. Four bolts.

βeta: Cross right early then reach up for the crack in the corner and lay off right. Move left again to a slabby problem. Finish with a small overhang on great holds to a nice ledge to the anchor. Lovely climbing with generous protection. 2*
