Avon Gorge (Main Wall)

Avon and Somerset

The broad, sheer cliff of grey limestone that sits at the centre of the gorge. Slabby, easy angled limestone, lots of excellent routes in the easier grades, but protection tends to be sparse, and many of the plum lines suffer from polish. Some of the best bouldering in the area can be had here. Multi-pitch routes to 90 metres.
