Rock climbing on Hidden Wall Boulder

Another excellent find tucked away at the same level 30 yards to the right of the Ring Road Boulder. Walk past a scrappy cleaned wall (with a few easy problems) on the right and it soon appears. This 12 foot high plum vertical wall is covered in a great selection of finger edges and crimps. Again good eliminate potential. http://esotericbouldering.com/bristol/ringroad.html

There are various approaches to get to the bouldering. The one described here takes about 10 minutes. Park on Hartford drive, approached by turning right off the B4508 from Frenchay along Beckspool Road then left into Penn Drive then first left again. Alternatively exit at Junction 1 on the M32 to get to the same spot. Cross the A4174 Ring road and walk rightwards along the road until you see a footpath on the left crossing the fields. (Frome valley walkway) Cross the field down to the river following a field boundary. Cross the little bridge over a small stream and follow a path immediately rightwards over a fence and down to the main river. Turn right for the Ring Road Boulder and Hidden wall, cross the small footbridge and continue for about 75 metres. The Ring Road Boulder (actually a small rounded buttress) is up a bank on the right, and the hidden wall is 20 metres right of the boulder at the same level.
