Description 

The largest crag in the area. Quarried or natural limestone, routes up to 300 feet long. Mainly west facing. Great views over the Wye (a tidal section of the river) - not to be confused with the River Wye in Derbyshire!.

Getting There 

From Chepstow take the B4228 to the village of Wintour's Leap. Park at the top and walk down - on first visit it's best to take the long way round (Lancaut Walk) to get a good view of the cliff.

Climbing Season

For the England area.

Devious! Who thought J Tree grades would make their way to the UK?Pull strenuously up a slick groove/ right facing corner and pass a tree on its right side (original route) or left side (more logical IMO). Above the tree climb up 3 m and traverse left 3 m, then ascend a tricky spot of face climbing up and right a further 3 m. Sort some good pro in a finger-size slot to the right, then make an insecure mantle onto a tiny ledge. Past this crux climb more easily up and right in a groove to finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
