BATTLESHIP BEACH


Battleship Edge is one of the most popular sport climbing venues in Dorset. Nestling beneath, somewhat unnoticed, is a collection of large boulders home to close to 110 boulder problems. With reasonably easy access, quality rock, and good climbing across the grades, Battleship Beach deserves far more attention. Landings are rocky and sometimes uneven, so bouldering mats are essential - in fact the more the better if you are going to push your grade.
