[Dale, Nick O'Demus F6a, Nickodemus Knob, Portland, Dorset. , 2 kb]10m. A good, but tough pitch taking on the steep lower overhangs, and then the technical upper wall which requires careful route finding. © ROCKFAX
The second route from the right, climbing the overhang to gain the central wall.

6a+ as opposed to 6a. Tough, overhang took some working out then was okay. Technical higher section was really hard and I'm not sure how I did it! Very lacking in holds. Then a crumbly top which made me glad I didn't lead it. Erin didn't finish which made me even more surprised that I finished it!

Warm-up that became a bit of a mess - Certainly a 6a+ I'd say, a few tenuous moves and not the ideal warm-up route! Beware loose rock higher up as with all these here.

Had to rest after pulling over the first bulges as I was a bit pumped and a bit freaked out by how loose and dirty the route was. All the routes on the "knob" are good but seriously need more traffic as they are quite dirty/dusty and there is a lot of loose rock in the band of "cheese" that runs across at 2/3 height.
