Crag features
Worbarrow Tout is the rocky promontory topped with grass, which protrudes from the eastern corner of Worbarrow Bay. Mud and vegetation appear to predominate and the area of overlapping slabs on the northern side of the promontory, whilst reminiscent of the Culm Coast, is of too low an angle to offer any challenge. The climbs, however, are all on the southern face, a 400m long cliff ranging from a few metres to 35 metres plus scrambling. The routes at the western end of the Tout finish on top of a clean rocky ridge, whereas those on the central and eastern end finish up steep vegetation with no known stakes for belays.

Approach notes
WARNING: Worbarrow Tout lies within the danger area of the Army Tank Ranges, which are open to the public only at specified times. Unfortunately the following descriptions are for the record only, as even when firing is not taking place the public are not permitted to stray from footpaths. The by laws forbid climbing anywhere within the Lulworth firing ranges, and the army state that those found off the way marked paths may be liable to prosecution.
