About Ogmore (OS):

Climbing at Ogmore can be a memorable experience, especially if you get the tides wrong! The tides here are very fast, and the rocks very sharp to fall on, however, the climbing here makes it all worthwhile. Lots of routes for the expert, and plenty in the other grades too. In parts it is just overhanging, and in others, wildly overhanging. The rock is sound except for some of the top belays, and double ropes are essential on the harder routes, as are prusiks or Jumars for the second of insufficient ability. Few of the climbs are escapable at high tide, and if there are high seas, the dangers will become obvious! About 200 routes up to 150 feet long, and SW facing for the afternoon sun.
Nearest town or city: Bridgend
Directions: OS 170 GR SS 875 738 Alt. 0m 5 miles SW of Bridgend. Take the B4524 to Southerndown, then a small lane to Dunraven Bay car park. The cliffs run northwest from here for about one mile. One can also park near Southerndown by the cliffs and walk down via the west end. Walk along the beach, but DO NOT LEAVE BAGS AT THE BOTTOM or the incoming sea will swallow them very quickly!!!
