This edition of Rockfax Dorset was first published in February 2012 and sold out in June 2021. It was the first Dorset book to be covered in both print and digital. A new edition published in July 2021.
The 2012 edition of the Dorset Rockfax featured 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.
