Portland - Please avoid

If you are thinking of heading over to Portland in the near future, please don't. There are a few issues there. The car parks are, I believe, closed, so you would probably have to park on the housing estate, this is likely to antagonise the locals and cause us problems in future. The paths underneath the cliffs are narrow so maintaining social distance while passing belayers and other climbers would be problematical. It would be best if we held off climbing at Portland for a little while until things settle down.

Many thanks for your understanding.

According to an email from Portland town council this morning, all bar one (Cheyne Weares) of the council run car parks are now open.
