Portland, Dorset @ Portland, Dorset
Jul 26 – Jul 28 all-day


  • This is a weekend meet with campsite to be decided but can easily be done as a day trip (Portland is 1hr 30mins from Romsey).
  • 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.
  • 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).

Oct 14 – Oct 21 all-day
Here’s where we will be staying. It’s a really nice little hotel, slightly away from the busy main climbing hub of Massouri, but an easy walk to lots of nice restaurants.
I’ve booked six rooms, and the cost is €45 for single occupancy, or €60 if you are happy to share. Breakfast is included.
I’m bringing my non climbing partner with me – there’s loads of active stuff to do on the island, or there’s plenty of beach life and lovely cafes.
I think we may be able to get extra rooms on top of the ones I’ve booked, but obviously if you can get in early you’ll be guaranteed somewhere to kip.
