Wye Valley

13/07/2018 @ 7:00 am – 14/07/2018 @ 6:30 pm

The Wye Valley is a brilliant place to climb!  Wintours Leap really does have something for everyone from total beginners to seasoned rock apes; Single pitch, multi-pitch, trad, sports and at all grades too.  If you want a safe introduction to multi-pitch climbing in a great setting then this is the place to do it.  The rock is quarried limestone, not too polished and generally fairly sound.  To top it all off there are spectacular views of the river Wye and the surrounding countryside to be had – watching the sun go down over the Wye is to die for (not literally of course!).  There are also the crags at Wyndcliff, Ban y Gor (mostly sport), Shorn Cliff and Simonds Yat, amongst others, to enjoy in the vicinity if you prefer.
The plan is to head up to Chepstow early on Saturday (or even Friday if there is enough interest), climb at Wintours Leap then head on to the Elmsdale Caravan and Camping site
(http://www.camping-and-caravan.co.uk, a bit north of Symonds Yat) where we stayed last year.  A visit to Symonds Yat on the Sunday and wander back late afternoon/early evening could be good.I will book the camp site on the basis of those who have expressed an interest by the 1st of July.
