Blacknor Central Dorset, ENGLAND
Climbs 75 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 50m a.s.l – Faces SW
Blacknor Central faces west-south-west and is a good-afternnon-sun venue (not south-east as somebody had said). It suffers from dusty rock in places but many of the lines are on good flowstone and pocketed walls. A good place to check out if Blacknor North is busy. Possible restriction from 1 Feb to 31 July on one sector only. Check ROCKFAX web site.

All the Blacknor cliffs are approached from the parking area at the far south west corner of the housing estate in Weston. It is planned to turn this site into a visitor’s car park in the near future. Do not park anywhere else in the housing estate especially not in Croft Road. If the car park is full then please park on the main street in Weston and walk down the path next to the Royal Exchange pub. Walk towards the cliff-top path and turn right (looking out). Continue for about 500m, past an old bunker, and drop down into a quarried area. Find a small path which doubles back leftwards down the hill. This leads down to the first routes on the Drag Racing Area.

There is a new easy area by the sea called 'Lunar Park' - grades range from 2 - 5+. Descend directly below Boilermaker along the faint scree path. Two very large bolted boulders exist giving around a dozen routes. The largest boulder is seaward facing and lashed by rough seas and hight tide. A good venue if the other slabs further south are crowded - have fun...|
