Ogmore (Main)

Climbs 110 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces S

Crag features
Generally steep and overhanging rock - mostly good but "some of the finishes and occasionally entire routes" can be unstable. In-situ gear may be corroded. A real adventure experience, but not to be underrated. Routes up to 36m.

Approach notes
Tidal - extremely so, with tides rising 6m to 9m up the cliff.

Take the road from Ogmore by Sea (B4524) tw Southerndown Bay to a sharp bend passing West Farm (just after sign marking Southerndown boundary). Park in grassy area bounded by concrete posts. The tea shop is now a Jazz venue which does have a Cafe/Bar, called The Barn.

Walk down grassy gully tw sea to narrow path running W. Abseil approach. There are some stakes, but there are also a number of bolts to abseil off as well.

The routes I've climbed here feel bigger and harder than the grade suggests. Not a place to push your grade?
