Was Trowbarrow, now Castle Naze by popular demand.
Will be at the crag around 4pm...anyone able to get there sooner, post on Whatsapp.
Will hopwfully find a slot for Trowbarrow and all it's delights at some point one weekend in the near future...
One of the very best Lancashire limestone venues with several three star trad routes between VS and E2 on the 25m main wall, and many other excellent 2 star routes. It is a pleasant, open green place, and the view across Morecambe Bay from the belays at the top of the main wall are simply fantastic.
The crag has many Bowie themed routes including Jean Jeanie, Cracked actor and Aladinsane - bring your no 6 friend for the latter – for some inexplicable reason I’ve led this beast of an off-width twice – but I’ll bring my cams so you can too!!
There are other superb routes spread around the quarry, including a three star V Diff (Jomo) and an excellent severe called Ramp Ant, the amazing HVS of Assagai wall and the classic VS Coral Sea.
There is some good bouldering here as well, if that's your thing.
The really big bonus is that the new Lancashire Guidebook features stunning shots of Trowbarrow and excellent new Topo's. A great reason to buy your copy and come and try your hand at one of the incredible routes here.
I’ll be aiming to be here by 4pm.
UPDATE: Last minute change of plan, this weeks tuesday evening will be at Castle Naze! Guaranteed sunshine, warm rock, lovely views, great people, what more could you want
