Cheddar Gorge is a limestone gorge in the Mendip Hills, near the village of Cheddar, Somerset, England. The climb through the gorge is UK Official Climbs #1. The gorge is the site of the Cheddar show caves, where Britain's oldest complete human skeleton, Cheddar Man, estimated to be 9,000 years old, was found in 1903. Although not as tough as many of the other official climbs, it attracts many thousands of cyclists every year to experience the unique ascent through the limestone cliffs.
