Altitude 6m a.s.l
An isolated area on a beach to the north of The Cuttings Boulderfield. Only 15 problems have been described, but the quality and variety is generally good, and there is opportunity for more problems on some of the other boulders. A good location for a relaxed morning session and an option if The Cuttings Boulderfield is busy, or you fancy a change. The outlook and environment is pleasant, particularly since the sewerage outflow was decommissioned.
Drive through Easton towards Southwell to the Church Ope car park. Walk back up the road for 50m, and at the tiny Portland Museum, turn right onto Church Ope Road. Follow the road under an arch to a viewpoint - a flat area with some benches directly under Rufus Castle. From here, take the coast path (not the path down steps to Church Ope Cove) to a wide track which leads past the New Cuttings and The Cuttings cliff. Continue along the track for 1km past the end of The Cuttings cliff. Opposite a disused pumping station a small path descends the bank to the right of the track. A path leads leftward through thick vegetation then down an open slope to a beach. The bouldering is found near the promontory to the left (looking out).
