Trowbarrow Quarry

Today I went for a bit of afternoon cragging to Trowbarrow. This limestone quarry has a mix of routes across the grades. After climbing some easy classics in the sun, I had a bash at Asylum. Due to slightly weak fingers, very warm rock, foot holds breaking and a split finger tip (good range of excuses is the key), I failed just past the sole bolt 3/4 of the way up. It is a fragile route and a lot of holds many have broken over the years, but I just couldn't work it out today. Need to put on rope and do a few more routes, maybe.
