Set well away from the main climbing areas on Portland is this curious feature named in honour of a local man, Nick O'Demus, and his outstanding appendage (perhaps). The Nicodemus Knob is a squat pinnacle set high above the sea on the rim of the Isle's plateau. It has a beautiful outlook, as well as a quiet setting. Although only home to a small bunch of climbs 'The Knob' is an interesting spot and worth a visit.
