Climb the limestone crags of the Swanage Coast. A Weekend of Rock Climbing in a beautiful setting. Duration: Two days, one night Being only a short journey from London, Dorset is one of the finest and closest climbing destinations to the south east. The Limestone cliffs of the Swanage coast stretch for some 3 miles and offer a bewildering array of climbing routes.

All routes are bolted with good stainless resin anchors and lower off points, making climbing safe and enjoyable. Whether you are a seasoned high climbing professional, a self-taught enthusiast or a complete beginner, Dorset has plenty to get your teeth into.
