(one rest) hard to enter pumpy layback near to top with bold move past an overhanging buttress to finish. Saddled the top to clip the belay

I'm surprised more people have voted this a hard 6b. I'd say it's a typical Giggleswick route, lots of side pulls. It took me a while to figure out the moves around the third bolt but I'm looking forward to revisiting this route in the future.

Did it with a rope from First Pillar which Mick had already led, so a significant potential for swing. Excellent route with nice jamming in the top crack/pinnacle.

Cracking route with a steep finish through the hanging groove. In many ways more straight forward then The Flat Iron as the holds and moves are obvious, however it requires a good deal more grunt. Let down slightly by the tempting option to step left just at the crux move.

Spent too long getting body position right for the crux :-( Not enough time today to lead clean but will do next time!

Messed up on the lead and got pumped out. Was fine on the 2nd as I new where to place the hands before the juggy top section.

Damn, so close - a very pumpy route, just try to keep going because there are jugs at the top.
