Ogmore-by-Sea - The Bonus Trench

Back to Ogmore-by-sea
As for the Trench; this is the second inlet about 20m to the East of the Trench. Scramble or walk around at low tide. Being considerably wider, it is perhaps quicker drying than the Trench. There is scope for more development.
The following problems finish at the break - traverse off or downclimb Problem 1.
- f4 Easy way up/down
- Severn Bridge f5 Wall starting with right hand in the small runnel (chalked in photo); groove higher up
- Delamere Leighback f5 The hanging layback arete can be started any of three ways - from the small runnel, direct by jumping to the jug below, or from the right. The latter is probably harder if you avoid using the runnel as a foothold (f5+?)
There is an interesting looking arete to the left of problem 1.
The back of the west wall has some clean rock.
- f5+? (fluttery) Rockover onto the slab then jump for the jugs at the top. Bold.
- f6a? Layback the arete to the right of the easy runnel, taking care not to hit the rock behind if falling off (spotter recommended).
