Wallsend North Dorset, ENGLAND
Climbs 134 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 30m a.s.l – Faces W
Wallsend is the largest and arguably best cliff on Portland. Wallsend North consists of a series of small bays and walls perched above the sea. Some of the approaches are awkward since the bank below the faces is slowly slipping into the sea.
Wallsend North Approach (all areas up to Downhill Spiral Area) - Drive through Weston and after passing the shops, keep right down Wide Street. On the next bend turn right into Reap Lane. Continue for 500m to a bend in the road and either park on the main road, or on the road leading towards the building from Reap Lane. You can park right up near the white building if desired but there have been break-ins here. From this road head straight towards the cliff-top path then turn left (looking out) and walk on for 50m. Drop down a descent path which cuts back right and at the end of this head left underneath the Unsung Area.

Large sections of the cliffs have been covered with landslides, hence most routes are either tricky to access our costs in mud. Not sure when this occurred, but it doesn't look like there has been much traffic since.|
