Red with Rage (7b) on the Sea Wall at Oxwich © Mark Glaister

Approach notes

For The Red wall (sea wall near the landslide), easiest access is along the beach, but this is often slippery when wet. For the secret Oxwich follow the costal path past the church, up the steps, along the flat path for around 1km then drop down another set of steps which comes down to overlook the quarry. Along the side of the quarry there is a wooden fence hiding the edge. To get down to the quarry, at the left hand side of the fence there is a steep path down. Alternatively you can walk around to the end of the path which comes out on the beach (at low tide) and you can cut back up though the trees to the crag.

Restricted Access

There has been a major rockfall at this location (Dec 21st) and climbers are asked to avoid this venue until CCW have managed to make a full assement of the rockface. There are no access difficulties provided climbers do not exit the cliff tops, avoid excessive vegetation damage and do not encourage the general public into the quarry area. BMC are working with CCW on a local proposal to clean-up this crag - watch this space.

I have finished adding all missing climbs at Secret Oxwich, here is a list, in order of the climbs. LEFT TO RIGHT Load Of bullocks Underneath The Larches Life's Too Short (listed as un-named[No4]) Snatched From The Cradle Cradle Snatcher Baby Boing Boing Laughing Boy Baby Bouncer Teenage Kicks Me Inheritance Ox-Over Moon (listed as Un-named [No 10]) Dynamo Kiev Grated Expectations Anonymous Flare Toxicology Hubble Rubble Soil And Shovel Anoek Clear Missile Dirt Box Cradle Of Dirt Filthy Snatch Cauldron Of Satyr Devil's Brew Hope this is helpful. Probably would be of use to have this crag seperate from the rest of the Oxwich climbs.

Also, a lot of the climbs in this area are in the wrong order.
Craig Seaman - 16/Apr/11
The "new Oxwich" or "secret Oxwich" part of the crag is well out of date on here, A lot has been rebolted (April 2011) will try and update as well as possible.

Following the pre-Xmas landslide, it looks like the routes from (and including) Red Leicester to Sweet September are now gone.
nikgoile - 28/Dec/09
There has been a recent massive landslide here which has obliterated quite a few routes. Will post another comment when I've worked out what is gone.
