NOTE - this MiniGuide will soon be discontinued and replaced with the new Dorset Bouldering guidebook.
The complex sprawling mass of boulders below the Cuttings on Portland has been extensively developed over the years and is now the best bouldering area on the Isle of Portland by some distance.
Back in 2004 we published a MiniGUIDE by Ben Stokes featuring 80 problems. This new version two has more than three times as many problems (over 250) over many more boulders.
Ben has done an amazing job of documenting this complex area and this MiniGUIDE makes an excellent companion to the Dorset Rockfax guidebook.
