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).

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
