For the last couple of days I've been climbing with Sue & Jude. Today's was Troutdale Pinnacle (S) in Borrowdale, a route with a big reputation in their climbing circle. Conditions were far better than last week and there were just a couple of wet streaks to avoid. The sun arrived as we climbed the pinnacle giving a very pleasant finish. With plenty of energy left we avoided Shepherds Cafe and the ladies swung leads up Jackdaw Ridge on Shepherds Crag
