Swanage and Portland


Author Nigel Coe – Published Climbers' Club (1995)ISBN 0-901-601-56-X


Two-book guide to trad-climbing Swanage and apparently trad-climbing (but with bolts) Portland. Includes some Portland trad routes you wouldn't wish on an enemy. Good Swanage guide, but Rockfax is far better for Portland.
