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!

David lead the first two pitches as one to below the 5a pitch. I set off up the 5a pitch finding the initial crack quite strenuous, arriving at the finger traverse I found it intimidating and put more protection in then most would. Misreading the guidebook I attempted to climp past the pinacle allthe way to the top but was stopped 5m from the top (I didn't know it at the time) by horrendous rope drag and a distinct paucity of appropriatley sized nuts so downclimbed to the pinacle. There I brought David up and he belayed me to the top before bringing up Mike.

Outstanding. Chimney pitch nasty but traverse on next pitch surprisingly good

A great climb. I found P4 quite pumpy to start, hanging around to place gear.

Bit of an epic this one. Lead first pitch no problem, second pitch a bit thin so we went out right before getting back on route, Third pitch was tough (even on second) Then the storm came in and we were pelted with 4mm hail stones for about 15 minutes. 55m abseil to the bottom in the rain.

led one of the 5a pitches (the crack). loved it. sat on the pinnacle as ed led the last pitch another group joined us from the normal troutdale pinnacle route (dad and 14 yr old daughter we thought. turned out to be his son though. oops)the son let out the loudest fart and only admitted to it cause me and mike were arguing over who it was. highly entertaining
