Shorn Cliff

Shorn Cliff is one of the UK's most popular limestone trad cliffs, commanding a beautiful position high above the lower reaches of the River Wye. The cliff is a favourite for those climbing at grades from Severe to mid-extreme with many of the routes having good rock, climbing and strong lines. A longish approach, coupled with the cliff being located in dense forest, should not dampen any ambitions of making a visit, since the ambience, glimpses of the river and nearby Tintern Abbey are all charming. The majority of protection is from wires and cams, along with threads and some pegs (many in place - these should be carefully checked). Most of the climbs are well-travelled, but a number of the walls and buttresses have now become overgrown - these have been omitted here, but are still recorded on the UKC database.
