Trow Gill

Climbs 90 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
A narrow gorge with a number of hard sport routes on the south side and an abundance of easier sport routes on the North (sunny) side. A bit slow to dry and shady and cold in winter. Best time to visit May to October.

Access notes
A pleasant 30 minute walk from Clapham. Park in the village and follow the track passing the lake Ingleborough Cave(ice cream and drinks available!) until it bends left and climbs into the gorge. A small fee is charged to use this track though the impecunious can use the green track on the east side of the village.

Midge infested, had to go somewhere else!

A crag that has now matured. Many of the routes have become popular, even on the dark left wall. The sunny right wall has a range of good lines and, though not always impeccable, the rock is very good. As with all mountain limestone care should be taken. The left wall sees fewer ascents as the routes take longer to dry. They do however present some excellent challenges, are shady on warm days and take very little effort to clean up in the late spring.

The north wall: take a helmet. A lot is dirty, a lot is loose: small stuff and big stuff does come off (see large rock scar on Popmaster). Very poor rock/choss has been bolted up at the far right side.

Not a bad crag at all.Unexpected variety of routes. More solid than Norber, but still loose in places; large block nearly caused serious injury to sunbather under South wall the other weekend. Wear a lid and eat butties by the path.

Consider taking a lid. There is a lot of solid rock, there is also a fair bit still coming off. I'm glad we had one for belaying, especially when it's busy.
