Crag features

The bouldering to the north of the Cheyne Weares car park is spread amongst several disparate locations along the heavily quarried strip between the cliff-top and beach. This area is known as the Southwell Landslips. Although the bouldering here is relatively unknown and not very well frequented, it would be wrong to assume that it is of poor quality. The Southwell Landslips is a good winter venue and the quiet atmosphere makes a pleasant alternative to the nearby Cuttings Area which is often busy at that time of year.

Most of the initial development was by Jimbo Kimber, Ben Thorne, Tim Crawshaw and Ben Stokes. More recently, the beaches below have been explored by Ben Stokes and Luke Ellis, adding to the variety and appeal of the area.

Approach notes

Park at the large Cheyne Weares car park off the main road south of Easton where good footpaths lead to all the sectors.

Dorset Bouldering

Dorset has emerged as a major bouldering area in recent years thanks to the hard work of a bunch of diligent locals who have combed the coastline seeking out every block, problem and traverse. In addition to the well known areas of the Cuttings, the Boulderfield and the Neddyfields, the book has extensive information on the West Coast of Portland, many more areas on the East Coast, plus Swanage and Lulworth. It describes over 1500 boulder problems on over 350 pages.
