Giggleswick North offers a wide choice of sports routes ranging from the extremely steep horizontal world of the Hollywood Bowl to a mix of easier climbs on the walls to its left. Ease of access makes it a popular evening venue even in inclement weather as it gets plenty of sun and is sheltered from northerly winds.
Approach - Giggleswick North is approached from parking pull-offs located on the road that runs west out of Settle towards the A65. When approaching from the A65 (Bye-Pass) direction the parking place is on the left just before the brow of the hill about a quarter of a mile from the junction with the A65.
A path leads from the parking area and climbs to the base of the cliff line. The first crag to be encountered is the very obvious Hollywood Bowl. Further left just beyond an old wall and two yew trees the path splits. Take the narrow upper path above a broken crag. to pass below the climbing on the North Buttress.
