Moondance at Trowbarrow

I had a great afternoon yesterday. Dodging the showers I headed over to Trowbarrow Quarry just south of Kendal & linked up with Woody & one of his mates Mark Roe from Ambleside. Both Mark & Woody had climbed Cracked Actor E2  to warm up & Woody was just finishing up Moondance which takes an independent line between Jean Jeanie & A Touch of Class.

Me leading the lower part of Moon Dance E5 6a

It's a great pitch & totally absorbing climbing, working your way up a matrix of fossils & small crimps which link at times faint horizontal breaks running across the steep Main Wall at Trowbarrow Quarry.

Me enjoying the moves high up on Moondance - Main Wall, Trowbarrow Quarry.

Trowbarrow doesn't stop surprising me with the amount of good quality routes you'll find there from VS through to E5. It's a great venue when the rest of the Lakes is blown out as it generally gets better weather being that bit further south, it catches a lot of sun & the rock dries super quick - it's a great venue in the South Lakes.

Safe climbing!
