It's time for spring sunshine at the seaside!
As one of the closest climbing venues to London, Portland offers a good mix of social, low-fear sport climbing and some long, pumpy, committing routes too. Deep-water soloing for the brave! For the trad purists, there are a few “proper climbing” routes on Portland – and Swanage is a short-ish drive.
This is also a super spot for walking the Jurassic Coast (or maybe a trail run or a bike ride?). The coast has spectacular footpaths and nice beaches and I expect the ice cream is pretty good too.
We'll be staying on this lovely campsite http://www.weymouthcampingandcaravanpark.co.uk/, right next to Chesil beach, between Portland and Weymouth. There's a farmshop on site selling bacon butties in the morning and has fire pits for hire at night. and yes, it's 5 minutes to the pub. From £12/night for a one person tent.
Time to get your tent out!
