About Wintours Leap (OS):

Some consider this rock and area unattractive, lots of loose rock and undergrowth, but there are over 300 routes on cliffs rising up to 300 feet, so some must consider it otherwise. A popular crag with beginners, though only 30 routes are below VS, and unprotected. Hard routes get the quality stars. The rock dries very quickly, so don't worry about the rainy spells.
Nearest town or city: Chepstow
Directions: OS 162 GR ST 541 962 Alt. 39m 2 miles NNE of Chepstow. Take the B4228 north form Chepstow to the Rising Sun Pub after the village of Woodcroft. Be careful not to obstruct any driveways when you park. The cliff is approached from above by passing the wire fence on the right, then heading down a ramp into a quarry. Lots of rock to be found here, you just have to find it!
