Beginners – Portland

Meet organiser: Stu H

Day trip to Portland – a popular sports climbing venue where all the routes are bolted so no worrying about all that pesky trad gear. Its a great venue for all abilities – easy and short walk ins, single pitch routes so nice and sociable, a large spread of grades to suit everyone, and its own micro-climate that guarantees sunshine. If you’ve never climbed outside before this is a great location to start. Sport climbing particularly makes it very easy for people to climb as much or as little as they feel comfortable with – its the natural next step from climbing on an indoor wall.

I shall probably leave the decision on exactly which crag to go to until the day itself – depending on how the weather looks (some crags can get toooo hot in the unrelenting sunshine) and who comes along. Generally we will aim to leave the Southampton area about 8am or thereabouts which gets us to the crag probably just after 10. All the transport can be arranged a bit closer to the time.

If anyone is unsure, or wants any more details then just pop something up here and I will try to help.
