WINSPIT


Winspit Quarry is a very pleasant and sheltered sport climbers playground with an excellent set of routes that span the grades. It is now established as a popular and well-bolted venue, and one of the best places to climb during the winter months in the south of England. The climbs pack in the moves and progress is mostly made on positive, square-cut holds and in-cuts. The quarry is divided into two halves enclosing a rocky cove, which is a popular picnic and sunbathing spot throughout the year, making this one of the better family-friendly cragging venues in the Swanage area.
