OK, so I know this is cheeky, but I've got some time off this week, it'll be fairly quiet and the weather's good.
I heard recently that this is the tech side to ride, at least once the gorge top path drops down to Cheddar. But what about putting a route together? Is there any real way to get to the high point of that path without a carry up the steps to the left at the top end of the Gorge, from the road shortly before the entrance to Velvet Bottom? I guess you could start up the Velvet Bottom BW then take the rubbly path the drops down into the woods, but that might be worse than a carry up the steps.
Ideally something like the path at ST586534 that gives access to the SE side!
