The Wye valley's best sport crag, with a good collection of routes in the 5.11s and .12s. Although it also hosts traditional routes, the bolted lines are the main draw of the crag. The rock is natural limestone, steep for the most part, with some truly awesome roof climbing around the Crawl Area and the Main Wall.
Ban-y-gor is a popular summer venue due to its northerly aspect and the shade offered by trees, though once you climb above the tree cover you can catch some evening sun.
From Chepstow follow the A48 towards Gloucester then take a left shortly after crossing the river, signposted to Woodcroft. Pass the Rising Sun Inn then take the next left onto Lancaut Lane. Parking is available in a few small laybys on the left. From here, walk a short way further down Lancaut Lane before a fairly good footpath leaves the road on the right. About 500m along this is the right end of the crag.
