The quote in the Borrowdale guide book on the FA is incorrect. This incident happened when I was doing a second ascent with Jim Barber and got the wrong way around in the crack on P3. The FA by Paul Ross went smoothly.

Very wet at bottom so Paul started up Troutdale Pinnacle first pitch. I led second pitch but went left - moderate moves to base of pitch 3. Paul led but knocked his gear out and had to back off so I led it in the end. Gear placement was hard at the crux and the temptation was to stay close (especially due to slightly wet conditions) rather than laying off which is the way to crack it! Paul led the finger traverse and I took the last pitch. A classic route and this variation worked!

There is nothing to put your feet on apart from the flat angled rock and you canít see them. Your fingers do not go in that far so it is very hard. I fell here. I will have to try this one again!
