Review

The guidebook which turned Portland from a secret sports route to a venue for climbers from all over the country. Now superseded by Dorset - Fax11 (publ 2000) which has fuller info on the Dorset routes (but omits S Devon, which this book does have however this is available for free from the ROCKFAX webs site). The use of the "crux" symbol on route topos drew mixed responses. Now out of print.
