Promenade

Climbs 125 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
The first of the sport areas at Swanage. Steep bulging walls with some short and intense climbs. Still needs some re-gearing work. Easy approach and access via non-tidal ledge. One small bouldering wall and a handful of trad routes.

Access notes
From Durlston Car Park follow the road towards the lighthouse then turn west (right - looking out) along the coast path. Continue to a stile just before the two ‘mile’ pylons. From here drop down a steep grass gully to a ledge above a large rock amphitheatre. Descend (Diff) this past a tricky step at the bottom to gain the platform. There is an abseil stake if required.
