Battleship Main Dorset, ENGLAND
Climbs 69 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 40m a.s.l – Faces W
This was the first area to be retro-bolted and it has become the most popular starting point for exploring the Isle's incredible supply of well-bolted routes. The edge is very friendly with its gleaming white faces and strong corners and grooves. The crag base is a pleasant place to picnic and relax and it is possible to get a lot of mileage in a day here by nipping up and down the numerous pitches. Starting to show the signs of over-use and some of the routes have become a bit polished.
