Only two hours from Romsey, this area offers climbing in a wide range of grades. There are single- and multi-pitch routes and some real gems in idyllic locations high above the river Wye.

Organiser: Volunteer needed!

Fairy Cave – July @ Fairy Cave Quarry
Jul 25 all-day

This meet is aimed at outdoor novices and anyone else who needs to ease themselves back into climbing after a long layoff, although all club members will be very welcome. Fairy Cave is one of our favourite ‘local’ venues and is about an hour and forty minutes from Romsey.

There are many lower-grade routes to learn or refresh techniques and plenty of harder routes, virtually all on amenably-angled slabs, if you want to push yourself.

Jul 31 – Aug 1 all-day
  • This meet is planned as single day trips over the weekend (Portland is 1hr 30mins from Southampton) however there are plenty of campsites locally (likely to be very busy) if people wish to stay.
  • The aim will be to head to the quieter areas of Portland (such as The Lost Valley on the east side) with options to head elsewhere should people wish.
  • There are a good number of easier grade 3, 4 and 5 slabs available, with plenty of top roping options. Or harder grades can be targeted, depending on what people wish to do.
  • Bouldering is also an option – I will have a crash pad and the local bouldering guide book with me.
  • Options for a swim in the sea at Ope Cove if the weather is nice.
  • The plan will also be to stop at the Chesil Chippie after the days climbing for fish and chips on the beach (or a pint at The Cove).
