Raindrop*** E1 5b
[Jo on Raindrop, 2 kb]4 pitches. A fabulous outing with a good variety of pitches.
1. 5b The technical crux is the obvious, perfectly protected, slanting crack. Go right to the crack in the easier upper slab to the moustache of heather. Step up left to belay.
2. 4c Take the obvious line of holds up to the left end of the white roof, go left up a crack and then up a scoop. Very nice rock. These first two pitches can easily be ran together.
3. 5b The main objective and a superb pitch. Take the obvious flake in the wall to the right of the crack of the Superdirect with one move to the left onto the right hand flake. Continue up the steepening groove to the right slanting groove which leads to the stance on top of the pinnacle. It is not necessary to make two 2m stride left to the Superdirect.
4. 4c move up and pull left around the arete a little below where you would for troutdale pinnacle. or more normally finish as for troutdale pinnacle

We accidentally started Raindrop instead of Troutdale Pinnacle. Realised it pretty much immediately but continued up until just before the second belay, as the climbing was lovely. Traversed onto Troutdale for the rest of the climb, as we were a group of three and one wasn't experienced. I *must* go back and do the rest!

Raindrop for pitches 1+2 and then finished on Troutdale Pinnacle Direct for pitches 3+4. Slipped on the first slab as it started raining and was greasy.

jazzyjackson - AltLd - 23/Apr/10 with Ian Jones

Jason led pitches 1 and 2 in one. The little crack at the bottom is the technical crux of the climb and pitch 2 is easy for 5a and on very nice rock. The top pitch is the object of the exercise; a fantastic pitch with perfect gear. This would probably get **** in Scotlandland. A great finish to a really satisfying midweek climb. 13 pitches and 8 *.
