Crag features

Beeston is a fine series of interesting bays with some short, quality routes on excellent rock. It is a quiet area that is often ignored which may be worth considering on bank holidays. It is comprised of three sectors with very contrasting climbs. The Limekiln Cave has some good technical sport routes, and the Bay of Rainbows is great for soloing or easy routes on fantastic flowstone. The Great Escape Walls are a totally different ball game with an atmospheric stapled traverse and some very serious solos.

Approach notes

Use the limited parking spot near the Southwell pumping station. Follow a path past the pumping station to the coast. If the limited parking is already taken, reach this point by parking near Cheyne House and walking past the Neddyfields Bouldering Wall. 

Walk along the coast path for 15mins above Godnor, until a dome-shaped spoil heap is reached above a promontory. Beeston cliffs are accessed from here.

This new Rockfax guide will concentrate on Portland, Swanage and Lulworth, covering all the sport routes in these areas, and also the bulk of the quality trad climbing at Swanage and Lulworth.
