Rock climbing on Ring Road Cave Boulder
No opinions for Ring Road Cave yet ... leave your opinion
The third area, 'The Cave' provides a few problems of interest with one good harder problem. Its main feature surprisingly enough is a cave feature formed out of large flaky chunks of sandstone. It's a bit loose in the middle but solid on either side of the arch. The problems all finish on the obvious ledge. All look to have been climbed before but were re-climbed, named and graded by Dan Savory. Anyone want to own up? 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 left on the river pathway and walk 50 metres to the Cave, which is set back about 30 metres from the main path.
