Trowbarrow Quarry

Trowbarrow Quarry is a popular venue with a wide appeal. It also makes a reliable alternative if washed out from the Lake District. The two main faces are around 25m in height and composed of well-weathered and unusually featured walls that are split by some impressive cracks. Protection on all of the classics is generally good but occasionally loose rock will be encountered. A standard rack of wires and cams is adequate, and double ropes are advised. The best routes are in the VS to E2 grades following strong lines up cracks, however there are also some fine harder pitches on the blank rock away from the cracks. On the opposite side of the quarry, hidden behind trees, is a wall of excellent but smooth red rock with some tough, gently overhanging pitches that are frequently top-roped.
