A major climbing venue on various tiers. A good mix of sport and trad, sometimes coexisting on the same crag.
All of the crags on Acid rock are covered by the Summer Season access agreement. See the main Cheddar Gorge page for more details.
From Cheddar village, park in the first car park on the right after the bus pullout (and before the high rock car park). From here, take a small path on the right (South) side of the gorge, up past Sloworm tower. This leads to all areas.
Climbing Season For the South West area.
