i led pitch 1 and then pitch 4 (the finish to Troutdale Pinnacle) with the rain spotting threateningly making it more atmospheric. A bit of extra gear, a few wet holds and I was happily on top, great end to a nice day.

Peter Metcalfe - AltLd - 18/Jul/13 with Cath Sullivan

pah, just read my previous comment, a bit harder when you're leading and not sure if you're in the right place! need to step about 4 metres left of the block on 2nd pitch.

Did as four pitches - I led the third; Dave did the first two (4b and 4c). No problems with the climbing and a long leisurely sit on top of the pinnacle while we waited for the team in front to move off. Fantastic weather, warm and sunny with no wind.
sjbutterworth - AltLd O/S - 24/Jul/08 with Dave Fletch

Good - bottom pitch had a challenging section past a small roof, but 4c pitch a soft touch. Overall not much harder than Troutdale Pinnacle

Hidden - AltLd O/S - 27/May/08

A really nice 4 pitch route, only spoiled slightly by the bank holiday crowds. Pitch 1 was fairly straightforward up a slab and then crack to a ledge - more care needed to prevent the second taking a big swing. The 2nd pitch was a wonderful brown slab. Then a 2 hour wait at the belay point for slow climbers ahead to pass. MA lead the 3rd pitch which was an easy scramble followed by a steep but juggy wall. Mich did really well to get up this. The 4th pitch (shared with the severe) was fun up and around the pinnacle.
