About Highcliffe Nab (OS):

A very good sandstone crag, offering some very fine climbing, north facing, and best in the summer months. About 100 routes in all grades from Diff to E6, 30 to 70 feet long. The harder routes tend to be quite bold, topropers need a long rope to reach the anchors. Great view, quick drying, but also gets cold quick. Definately worth a visit. The trees below it have been cleared, giving a fantasic view of guis, lost it protection for the wind because of this tho. It it possible to drive to within site distance for the face (with acess throught Hutton Village) Nice place, shame about the ammount of carvings into the rock.
