TROW GILL


Trow Gill is a popular summer destination when dry, providing a good set of sport climbs to suit most tastes. The climbing varies from sustained and technical wall climbing to powerful overhangs. The North Wall (the sunny one) has lots of grade 6s and 7s that are well equipped and see regular ascents whilst the South Wall (the shady one) is a harder option with some equally fine 7s and 8s. The routes can be dirty after the winter months but soon clean up once the crag dries out and gets some traffic. The path below is often busy with walkers on their way to Gaping Gill which is situated on the moor a short distance beyond Trow Gill.
