The Dizzy Heights website is really a personal record of information about rock climbing in Dorset - mainly Swanage trad. climbing but there's some information about sport climbing and deep water soloing at Portland and Lulworth too - and some of the rock climbing and mountaineering that I've done in other places. If you want to know more, about me or the genesis of this site, then go to the page About Dizzy Heights.


There are two sections of this website; these can be accessed from the navigation bar on the left. Dorset Climbing Info. is mainly about the trad climbing at Swanage, with a bit about Portland and Lulworth too. General Climbing Info. contains some bits and pieces that I've written about climbing in other places and climbing-related topics. The site is gradually developing as I get round to adding bits. If you think you have something to offer, particularly related to climbing at Swanage, then feel free to contact me with anything from minor grade disagreements to long essays. I'll either add it to the site, or not, as takes my fancy at the time.


See you on the crag.
