A popular section of the cliff with a range of grades and a couple of the most attempted routes on Portland.
Approach - Follow Church Ope Road under an arch and down to a flat area with some benches. From here, take the coast path (not the path to Church Ope Cove) to a wide track which leads to The Cuttings in a couple of minutes. This wall is just above the junction of the track that drops down between The New Cuttings and The Cuttings and the main approach track.

Sign of the Vulcan Top 50
A thin crux with a split pocket gives a terrific test-piece.

Hillman The Hunter
Pass the brickwall with one peculiar hard move. Watch your leg behind the rope.
