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!

UKC Logbook Description
The second of the 2 newly bolted lines 4m to the right of It's My Life.

Climb the easy bulge direct through the sharp middle section, then make the super tough leftward eliminate move to the finishing jug above the bolts. Sharp holds through out the tough last move requires high feet good balance and maybe even a little dynamic throw to the finishing jug.
