Nicodemus Knob

Dorset, ENGLAND

Climbs 5 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 103m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
A 10 metre high pinnacle left by quarrymen in memory of the legendary prowess of Nick O'Demus. The SW face is generally sound and it can be climbed at about Mod. up its South Ridge. The chert in the top break can be crumbly and should be treated with care until the routes have had more traffic.

Access notes
Follow the road to the top of the hill on Portland. Nicodemus Knob is best accessed by taking the left turn at the roundabout and follow the road past the side of The Heights hotel and the view point car parks, until a right turn, just before it goes down hill leads to The Verne prison. Go past this and follow the track to a rusty gate, park here. Follow the fence eastwards until the pinnacle comes into view and an obvious footpath leads down towards it (5 mins).

Tough but very enjoyable. Easy to get round the side to put a rope up. Fancys Farm next door for cheap refreshments etc.

These climbs are not getting much traffic so it would be well worth scrambling to the top, clipping the loweroffs and abseiling down to give them a dust off and a check for any lose stuff in the top break first. It is a better summer crag as it catches the breeze when elsewhere is too hot, very exposed to the wind in winter.
