Troutdale Pinnacle
Borrowdale, English Lake District

Pics from Troutdale Pinnacle : Steve Pardoe with David Raper and Steve "Blofeld" Currier, 24. February 2000

The approach to Black Crag

Blofeld trying to look "balletic" ("Pathétique", certainly)

That's more sensible

Dave "I like belaying" R

Dave, looking to get some gear in to protect the exit from the super-exposed slab traverse

Moving up ...

... and onward

At the Pinnacle, among the windier belay places

Now it's my turn to cross it
That's Derwent Water down there ... ... a long way down there

Dave at the belay on the Pinnacle. It's getting dark now


Blofeld comes up

Steve on the final pitch

"Where's that jug?"

"Got it!"

Looking back up into the gloom
