Detailed Product Description

UK, Climbers' Club, 1996. 98 pp, color photos, route diagrams, maps. New paperback.

Sea cliff climbing in Britain.

This guidebook is a new venture for the CC. It describes the exciting new developments that have taken place at Swanage and Portland solo climbing in situations where to fall off means splashing down into deep (or in some cases not-so-deep - see below) water. As such it compliments the CC's Swanage and Portland guide.

The book contains 96 pages and is produced in A5 format with laminated card covers. This format allows for 20 large line drawings to be included with two maps. It is lavishly illustrated with 20 colour photos - these do much to put over the nature of the climbing, which at times has a positively Mediterranean feel to it!

Advice is given for climbers new to the sport, and over 130 climbs are described with conventional and 'S' grades. The latter from S0 to S3 indicate the degree of safety if the climber falls in (a 'splashdown'): from complete safety to "…water present for psychological purposes only".
