Landslip early 2014 MORE INFO >>>


The section of cliff to the left of the block. Not as high as the Back Cliff, but home to some good climbing on a variety of features.

Getting There 

Once on Portland drive through Fortune's Well then Weston. Just after exiting Weston take the second exit from the roundabout onto Reap Lane. Park on here with consideration to the local residents (pick a wide part of the road, not in front of any driveways, etc.).

Continue walking down Reap Lane and take a footpath on the right, just after a row of houses. This takes you to the coast path. Turn left (South) onto this for about 50m until a steep path (with a fixed rope a little lower down) leads down towards the sea. Follow this path above The Veranda towards the block. Battleship Main is just beyond the block and the Back Cliff.

Note that the former approach (from the North) was affected by a landslip in early 2014 and no longer exists. The information in any guidebook published before this date will be wrong.

The climb is pumpy but never too desperate. Very enjoyable moves form a consistent flow along the line.One can also top-rope the 11b just to the right, which finishes at the same anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
