Description 

The Wye Valley between Chepstow and Monmouth contains several good limestone crags. These are low-lying and some catch a lot of sun, so this can be a good venue in winter months when mountain crags are too cold.

Getting There 

The border between England and Wales runs down this part of the Wye Valley, though most of the crags lie on the English side. Chepstow is easily reached by crossing the Severn Bridge (M4 from London or M5 from Birmingham).

The route is clear and involves some enjoyable crack climbing in the fingers and fist size ranges. The route apparently used to feature an overhang that was passed with a fixed point of aid- this has long since fallen off leaving an enjoyable free climb on the stiff side of VS.Climb earthy ledges to a left-facing corner, which is climbed via a wide crack and face holds.
