Blackers Hole

Hi all.
Does anyone know if there's a ledge close to sea level with reasonably easy access around the Blacker's Hole area?
I often free climb around the Purbeck Hills but am unfamiliar with this area.
Thanks

There is a ledge at the entrance to Blackers Hole below the routes Gianslayer and Cold Empty Gun. However, to actually get into Blackers you need to do a tricky sea level traverse into the back of Blackers and onto the beach.

I think a fixed rope, along the line of the traverse, is in situ at the moment, but that can vary. To get into the back of Blackers and onto the beach needs calm seas. it would be quite exciting doing the traverse when the water is rough.

TJB.

That's perfect, thankyou.
I am going to take a walk down there at the weekend and scope it out.
All the best
