Anglers Zawn (Benllech) Gogarth and Anglesey, WALES
Climbs 36 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces E
A quick drying and sheltered sports climbing venue. Anglers Zawn Upper Tier is non Tidal so can be accessed at any time, it has the best routes at Benllech. Unlike Pen Trwyn there are no 'holiday' restrictions and currently has a good selection of mid grade sports routes (F6's)close together, without having to wander all over the place! Enjoy the morning sun or take advantage of the afternoon shade depending on the time of year. A sun trap even on cold winter days... The rock is quite often pocketed so makes for some excellent climbing...all this and some great views!

We climbed here yesterday May 10th. 'The Whispers' is NOT E1, and NOT HVS either. We felt that perhaps it was a soft VS 4b or 4c. The protection is good and can always be placed from a comfortable position, and there are so many fine handholds that it hardly matters that the footholds are tiny for one move.|

Tried to access this crag on 29th March 2013. It was high tide and there was no access from the bottom however it looks like at low tide you can walk to the base. Also from where we were looking we couldn't see any bolts.

It's all about the Upper Tier, better quality Rock and Routes + Non Tidal!

Well, the grades are all over the place,matching sunshine and the tides is unlikely,the top is covered in rubbish, beer cans, broken glass,bits of a wrecked car, etc. The lower third of the routes on the lower section are covered in barnacles because they are under water for a large part of the day and Craig Gogarth is much more accessible than Benllech.
I climbed at Benllech yesterday -can't imagine going back.

I cant understand why this place is not getting any traffic. It has really good routes and is in a stunning location. There is no better sports climbing venue on the island. Dont take my word for it. Just go there and see for yourselves.
