The current edition of the Dorset Rockfax features Portland, Swanage and Lulworth, covering all the sport routes in these areas, and also the bulk of the quality trad climbing at Swanage and Lulworth. This amazing area has gone from a backwater 30 years ago to being one of the most popular sport climbing areas in the country. Thousands of brilliant routes and a relatively friendly climate mean that the area is always busy with climbers. It isn’t just the sport climbing they come for though and the trad routes of Swanage are also covered in this book including many great classics both big and small.


The full guide is available on Rockfax Digital

The pace of development and the continued rise of the popularity of climbing at both Portland and Swanage has meant that this Dorset Rockfax guidebook is on the shelves only a little over six years since the publication of the previous Rockfax in late 2005. The sport climbing at Portland and Swanage has been extended with many new routes being added across both areas. The trad climbing at Swanage has also seen a rise in popularity and, as a result, more routes and even a few new crags have been added this time. On Portland, most of the trad routes on the cliffs covered are mentioned in the text, but no lines are presented on the topos.

This edition of Rockfax Dorset is presented in the latest Rockfax format, with full-page colour topos and action photography along with many new and updated features such as GPS, new maps and clearer topo lines and annotation.
