Anchor Buttress (Giggleswick South)
August 21 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The popular Giggleswick South crags offer a wide variety of climbing with plenty of worthwhile sport routes on the Lower Crag with grades ranging from 4 to 7b and they provide vertical wall climbing that is often technical but never too strenuous. Anchor Buttress is over to the left of the crag beyond Wilderness Walls and is pleasant and open section of the escarpment that has a number of good pitches easily accessed from the well-trodden path below it. The rock is generally pretty good, much of it on the main section of the buttress has been water worn. This section is open and very quick drying.
Approach: This buttress is best approached from from the left, parking at the pull in on the road from Settle and heading up to Sector Swan before traversing the path leftwards. Adjourn to Talbot in Settle
