The Wye Gorge is particularly noted for impressive cliff climbing. Symonds Yat and Wintours Leap are particularly popular but some of the climbs can be challenging, difficult and sometimes dangerous. Always seek expert advice from local climbing clubs or experienced individuals as not all areas are suited for climbing and some are sensitive environmental areas.
