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

In three pitchs. Previously led the first part, led the crux pitch today so have now led the whole route. Possibly the best route on the crag, lovely sustained technical climbing all the way to where it meets Troutdale Pinnacle with only a couple of decent rest points. One runout near the start of the pitch. Would be pumpy if you tried to hang around placing loads of gear!

Some legend brought some pringles up to the pinnacle so the waiting wasn't too bad, all in all a great day!

Pitches 1,2 + 4. First pitch a bit burly to start, second lovely, third hard!

Duncan Campbell 02/Jun/11 AltLd O/S

Led p1 and p3. P3 very reminiscent of overlapping wall on carreg wasted, fiddly gear and holds facing the wrong way. However, raindrop's gear is a little more straightforward and p3 is a more sustained outing. A really cool route.

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. Led pitch four which is a severe and pitch five of Troutdale Pinnacle which we had just done so i had already climbed it. Was pretty nervous about this one but was absolutely fine once I got on with it.

really worthy of the 3***. Ran first two pitches together and felt really flowing. Best multipitch ive climbed in ages. Quality bomber first time gear placements with major grin factor. More please...

Ian Jones 22/Apr/10 AltLd O/S

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 *.
