ICAS Climbing Club: Easter Portland trip
THIS TRIP IS NOW FULL - PLEASE SPEAK TO THE TRIP HOST LISA
If you are planning to head down on the Thursday evening please tell your host (Lisa) or speak directly to the bunkhouse to pay the additional night.
Outdoor trips are open only to paid-up members of the ICAS Climbing Club (£30 per year plus £5 joining fee). Speak to our membership secretary Lisa Payne for more information on joining.
Portland is justifiably famous for the wealth of quality sport climbing available on its lofty white cliffs. The West Coast in particular has now become one of the UK's best venues for well-bolted sport routes across the grades. The East Coast offers bouldering and deep water soloing into the mix as well as serving up its own excellent set of sport routes including many in the easier grades. If you haven't been to Portland before, then it may be useful to know that most crags have moderately easy access: you will have to scramble for up to 20 minutes to and from the climbing.
The Portland bunkhouse http://www.portlandbunkhouse.com/
Bedding is provided.
Costs £17pppn for 3 nights (Fri/Sat/Sun)
Accommodation is fully self catering so remember to supply your own food & drinks for the weekend (including pack lunches at the crag).
If we have good weather (or even if we don't) we could use the BBQ, there's a pub within walking distance and more a short drive away.
