Heading to Porthcawl for a couple of days with the family and looking for suggestions of really easy routes to initiate a novice climber and a toddler.
Is there anything (sport/ trad/ roped scrambling) that springs to mind that can be arranged easily, doesn't involve a massive walk-in and isn't affected much by tides? Something in the VDiff/ 4 territory, and half an hour's max drive away (Gower is probably too far on this occasion).
Any suggestions appreciated, and feel free to drop some routes/ crags in the mix that are further afield. Might give us inspiration for a future trip. Thanks.
Box bay is the obvious choice. 5min walk from rest Bay car park. Loads of short easy routes at 15-20m and is a total suntrap. Easy to rig anchors at the top, no abseiling required. Guide is on the southwards climbing wiki site
