50 of the best routes on the Isle of Portland in the Rockfax Orange Zone of F5 - F6a+. The list attempts to draw on routes from a wide variety of Portland crags.
* Updated 2015: Removed 2 routes now regarded as 6b, one no longer accessible due to landslides, a couple that had poor feedback, and some unbolted DWS stuff that seemed rather incongruous with the rest. Replaced with some more stuff, mostly at the F5 end of the scale, as list was light on these.
