Trowbarrow was acquired by Lancaster City Council in 1997 following a fund raising appeal organised by the Arnside and Silverdale AONB Landscape Trust. The crag lies within a Local Nature Reserve and it has a management committee (which includes a local BMC representative), that meets regularly to discuss site management. The following guidelines have been agreed for use of the crag: 1. There should be no abseiling, top-roping or lowering-off the Main Wall - climbers should walk down after completing routes. This arrangement is to protect geological features on the face which are part of a geological SSSI designation. 2. Group use is not permitted in the quarry. 3. There should be no bolts placed in the quarry. 4. No camping or fires. Thank you for supporting these access arrangements. A project monitoring the stability of the Main Wall has indicated it is slowly rotating in a clockwise direction due to localised faulting. While the face is unlikely to suffer a catastrophic collapse, the rotation is destabilising rock around Warspite Direct and other routes in this vacinity - hence the stepped roofs and fallen blocks.
