I'm looking to go away for a day or twos sport climbing somewhere in the south, i live on Portland and climb here and Swanage regularly and want to go somewhere new.
Preferably in the lower grades as I'm a fairly new climber, can anyone suggest a good crag or area? im happy to travel further afield if it means a good venue.
Looked at a few places in the south (cheddar and dartmoor) but a lot of them seem to have only high grades. Somewhere with a good amount of climbs in the 5 - 6b range would be great.
In reply to ConstaBern: There aren't any other lower grade sport venues in the south that I can think of. The lower grade climbs tend to remain as trad routes (do you climb trad?). The nearest sport venues are in South Wales (I could be wrong).
In reply to ConstaBern: You may be disappointed in other areas after Dorset, in terms of low/mid grade Sport it is probably comfortably the best UK destination. The only other area that comes close is North Wales where there are a fair numbers of routes in your grade range on the A55 Limestone Crags, at Trevor Rocks near Llangollen and in the Slate quarries (some of the levels in Australia have a host of lines at F5 - F6b, get the Ground Up Slate guide).
