Access to Rock Climbing in the Wye Valley

The Wye Valley's easy access being close to motorway links, makes it a convenient location. With direct inroads from the M4 its the closest climbing to London with many crags minutes from the road. A practical place for a 'day' project - find a climb within your grade (from numerous interesting and exciting climbs, including many stared routes of the highest quality), to extend your grade.  You might find there's so much to choose from, it's worth moving to the area and spending a few years getting to know it!!

 

Rock Climbing in the Wye Valley

Wintour's Leap is an especially good crag - where, at the top of climbs you'll find panoramic views across the valley and the River Wye. Beautiful, lush scenery in all directions.

 

Shorn cliff

Shorn cliff has a superb selection of single pitch routes, you are usually dancing your way up pocketed limestone to good tree anchors.

 

Symonds Yat

Symonds Yat is famous for the river rapids and a free standing pinnacle of which an ascent is a must. I love Symonds Yat for an adventure day, abseiling in and running around bagging routes of all grades. It’s one of those places that the more you get to know it the better it becomes.

 

Wyndcliff

Wyndcliff finally has both sport climbing and traditional climbing making it a great place to dabble in a bit of both and it’s a real sun trap making it great for those day in January where everywhere else is too cold.

It's an excellent area to learn trad climbing and sport climbing - on limestone cliffs with cover from the trees, and generally friendly anchor points. There's also well-sheltered quarry climbing at Tintern Quarry.

 

For the opportunity to feel some real exposure on longer, multi-pitch routes, there are some big climbs here, too. In excess of 100m - if you've got the stamina!

 

All in all, it's a very good climbing area with lots of variety.
