Just beyond Lion Rock on the North side of the gorge lies this steep crag. Like many of the Cheddar crags, it holds a mixture of scary trad lines (often reliant on fixed threads, old bolts an in-situ pitons) and sport routes.

The Remnant is a popular winter destination, as it receives sun until mid-afternoon. As a result it is pretty quick to dry, but can take some seepage for a day or two after heavy rain.

Getting There 

Park at the village end of the gorge, and walk back down into the village, until following a signposted footpath down a narrow lane on the right. A short way down this, turn right (also signposted) and make your way up to Lion Rock (it's pretty obvious). Continue past Lion Rock in roughly the same direction until you reach the crag.

The holds all seem to face the wrong way, and the crux move is a long reach off and undercling to a jug. From here, bolt 4 could be clipped high, but it's better to make another move to more good holds on the right before clipping. Easier climbing, but still with interest, leads to the top.A reliable winter route, drying quickly and not taking too much seepage, even staying ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
