A new sport climbing addition to the Somerset area, this crag host's 5 new routes graded between 6a+ - 8a. Equiped back in spring 2018 the routes have only recently been finally cleaned up and climbed. The access agreement has been long in the making so please do read up on it and adhere to their requests. Information can be found following the BMC RAD link. The harder routes to the right of the arete face SE therefore are a perfect late afternoon / evening location on sunny days. The routes here range from 10 - 12m and are of similar style to its larger nearby crag Cheddar Gorge. DO remember to take a brush or two as they will still be dusty.
Follow the trail that begins at the top of the car park, over a stone style. Take the first obvious left turn in the trail down into a slight valley. Following a small stream and past the wiker bear you will spot a small post pointing the way to the gorge. Follow this up the steepening path until an area dubbed The Narrows apears. The routes are situated on the left wall.
This site is particularly important for its nesting bird and botanical interests. As a result climbing is limited to bolted routes on the cliff faces indicated. Current access to the cliffs is for a trial period of 12 months. Any activity outside of the bolted routes could lead to closure of climbing access during this period or in subsequent years.
