Downhill

One of the biggest walls on Portland which has an array of top-notch pitches that will appeal to harder climbers. When in condition the climbs are some of the best on the coast. Due to lack of traffic they are more often than not a bit dirty and need a brief clean before an ascent. The pitches are long and sustained.

Climb Will to the ledge; extend the third clip. The hanging groove and flake-crack give some excellent climbing.

Shape of Tomorrow
Start a metre right of the scruffy flake. Climb a steep wall to the halfway ledge, move left and head for the scary flakes.

Spinal Tap
The long thin line has a safe, but scary run-out at the top.

The steep wall and blind flake is powerful in its first half then technical in its upper reaches.

Continually absorbing and very sustained climbing, but unfortunately often dirty. Formally 7b.

A direct and pumpy version of Disintegration with no real crux moves, but plenty of hard ones. A very good route.

An older line, but still excellent. Start up Zum Zeaux and link into the top of Ariane V.

Zum Zeaux
A tremendous route of contrasting styles. The initial leaning wall is burly whilst the upper wall is technical.

Magnetic Pull
An extremely demanding direct on Zum Zeaux with a power-packed first 10m. Save some energy for the last moves.

Another huge stamina pitch. Start up Realm of Chaos, move out right at the fourth bolt for 4m, then climb direct to the top.

Interesting, sustained climbing above the loose start shared with Bevis. Care needed with some of the rock.
