Topic - Battleship Edge Portland

profonrock - on 30 Aug 2014
Just visited Dorset and tried to get to Battleship Edge. RockFax directions seemed fine - path from Reap Lane to coast path, R 10-20 m then path started down the edge into an obvious hollow ... and then it was all land-slippage . Straight down was impossible, and left or right looked v v dangerous - real risk that everything would just slip down a blind drop of at least 20m. Have done many hairy descents to crags but this was simply too dangerous - impossible to see where you should go, with the ground totally unstable above big drop. No other ways down we could see. Has the descent path just slipped away, or did we miss it somehow? If we missed it, could someone provide cleaerr directions for the non-local?
