The Jurassic Coast has several excellent spots for serious rock climbers and boulderers, of which Portland is one of the finest. There are over 30 traditional routes, 160 bouldering problems, 99 dws routes and 859 sport routes.
Portlands west coast is considered one of the UKs best venues for sport routes (which are well bolted), across all grates. The east coast offers many easier sport routes, as well as bouldering and deep water soloing.
Rockfax.com is an excellent resource offering a database of route information for the whole of Portland climbing route information.
The Wessex Mountineering Club occasionally meet on Portland.
