/ Yorkshire bolt clipping in the 6s
Which venue would folks recommend?
Trow Gill (dry?)
Giggleswick (a bit crap?)
That crag up above Goredale? Go up to Chapel Head? or somewhere else entirely?
> Moughton Nab?
Has a few starred routes on the database but I don't have a guidebook. Might explore somewhere a bit more mainstream first, but ta.
if you fancy pushing into the low 7s how about Trollers. The Jim Grin is very onsightable and the route to the right also.
There are some 6s there too...not great routes, but worthwhile.

Think we'll try it, looks pretty good.
giggles wick? Crap? it's lovely!

I've not been, so I can't judge but I've kind of gathered that impression from the guidebook, pictures and reports. Short 'n' chossy?
Your assumptions about giggleswick are correct in my opinion.
Trollers is good, robin proctors if you want more around the 6a+ mark (good routes at that grade but only a handful 6c and over.
Gigg S and N are ok - some good routes amongst the masses.
Proctors a small set f good routes good setting
Moughton - nice place but only about 3 inches high Panorama likewise
Trollers - some good 6's - probably the best of the ones here
Thanks for the suggestions, went to Trollers and it was alright. Just ended up redpointing a route which was OK. Nice place and usual limestone whathaveyou.
