Trowbarrow has always been a popular climbing venue and over the last decade has been managed carefully and is now a very pleasant place to visit. Trowbarrow Quarry fulfils a number of functions being a good local evening crag, an excellent destination from further a field to sample its best pitches and as a reliable wet weather alternative to those washed out from the Lake District.
Anyone climbing on Red Wall, ensure that you throughly check top-outs and any anchors used at the top. Some of these are definitely not as solid as you might hope (it's been there 40 years and always been solid isn't a good assumption). Loose rock has been removed from the left end of the crag upto Mugwump and there is a suspect block above this route. Some trees at the top are also dead or hanging over the edge/shallow routed. Don't just hope that all is safe, conduct a proper check. Info added 13 Jul 22.
