Battleship Back CliffDorset, ENGLAND
Climbs 89 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 40m a.s.l – Faces W
New Sector: The Balcony
On the left, northern most of two small outcrops above the path on the southern approach to the Back Cliff. The lower most southerly cliff is “The Balcony”, easily visible from the path, with a flat grassy base hidden behind some brambles. From here a scramble over an earth mound to the left leads to an inset bay with a fine flat wall of good rock capped by an overhang – “The Attic”.
Climbs at this crag
The Battleship cliffs are easy to reach from a good parking spot. Drive through Weston and after passing the shops, keep right down Wide Street. On the next bend turn right into Reap Lane and park down here, on the left, opposite a track across the fields. There are plans to build a small new parking spot at the end of Reap Lane. Walk carefully down this track with your eyes to the ground - it’s dog turd alley! At the end walk slightly right and take one of two steep paths down the hillside. The cliffs are on your left starting with the Keyboard Wall Area.
