DWS at Lulworth - 5th October. I needed a rash vest for climbing but the water is still a perfectly acceptable temperature and rather warmer than early summer. If the weather holds then it might be okay 'til the end of the month.

The Dizzy Heights website is really a personal record of information about rock climbing in Dorset - lots of beta for Swanage trad. climbing; an introduction to Portland sport, and an overview of the awesome deep water soloing along the coast. If you want to know more, about me or the genesis of this site, then go to the page About Dizzy Heights.

There are two sections of this website; these can be accessed from the navigation bar on the left. Dorset Climbing Info. is what it says and is the main part of this site. General Climbing Info. contains some bits and pieces that I've written about climbing in other places and climbing-related topics. The site is gradually developing as I get round to adding bits. If you think you have something to offer, particularly related to climbing at Swanage, then feel free to contact 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.
