Restricted Access

The four main sections, North, Central, South and Far South have a continuous under cliff path lining them all. But it is better to access each section from either end. After the 2014 landslide destroyed the southern approach, Far South and south are best accessed from the wall quarry a top South section. Sections of the Path can be quick tricky, especially in the wet and the paths to the beach blocks tend to move around over time. Take a moment to look where you are heading to before heading straight to your chosen climbing area.

The classic Pregnant Pause a contender for Portlands longest route, is a full 30m and take a least 16 Draws. A full 60m rope will make it be always tie a knot in the end just in case!

Rockfax Description
A Portland gem. Start at a boulder on the path. Climb to below a long flake-crack. Move up the crack until a line leads out left onto the wall and a small ledge. Climb the slabby wall above the ledge until a tricky mantel move gains the lower-off. © Rockfax

βeta: Portland classic. Top move is well-protected but apparently quite hard for vertically challenged female climbing partners.
