Hello, 

I was looking at the UKC page for Snuff Mills and trying to find out about the routes there, but couldn't find any topos or information about some of the walls. I've got info of most of the boulders there from the Esoteric Bouldering guidebook, but there's nothing about some of the walls in there (probably cause it's a bouldering not trad book). Anyone got any topos/info?

The GWR Frome sandstone book has them in if you can get hold of a copy

The GWR Frome sandstone book had a limited print run and will not be printed again so its hard to get hold of. 

There is a topo for the sport climbing at snuff mills if you search around enough. I think this might work https://www.facebook.com/DicksClimbing/posts/930590310337503 but i'm not able to open google drive at work. 

As for the trad, the routes on Bridge buttress are very worthwhile and cobweb wall is excellent. Its probably possible to work out where they go using ukc description and photos.

I have the guide book, but Snuff Mills didn't look very good so I never checked it out.  It seems like there were better options in the local area.

Hi Sam, i've emailed you with some more information about snuff mills. It is imo the best area in the frome valley (exlcuding bouldering)
