Information about rock climbing at Swanage and Portland is collected together in this part of the Dizzy Heights website. I hope that you will find something useful, and maybe get a bit more from your Dorset rock climbing adventures as a result.
All pages can be accessed from the navigation bar on the left. The bulk of the information is about the trad climbing at Swanage. This is split into four main sections:
- Getting Off the Ground: for the Swanage newbie
- Beyond Subluminal: accessing more adventurous routes below E1
- Swanage Extreme: E1-E3
- Pushing the Boat Out: E4+
And I've added a video clip about packing a rack for the bigger routes:
The information is by no means comprehensive, in fact it's a fairly incomplete collection of route information, cafe beta etc. mixed in with anything that occurs to me that might be useful to someone else. Feel free to email me with anything from minor grade disagreements to long essays. I'll either add it to the site, or not, as takes my fancy at the time.
See you on the crag.
