When Walter Haskett smith arrived in Wasdale head in the Summer of 1881, he had no plans to climb mountain peaks. Yet, this Oxford student’s stay at Wasdale head marked the birth of British rock climbing. With the help of veteran mountaineer FH Bowring, smith tackled the amphitheater of crags that surrounds waste water with an enthusiasm which he communicated to others through him example and writings.
Over the next few years, Haskett smith returned to Wasdale head and made increasingly difficult climbs. Then 1886 he put British rock climbing firmly on the map when, wearing his usual nailed boots, he climbed great gable to the base of a sheer pillar as napes, needle. After inching his way up a crack in the rock, he then, ‘feeling as small as a mouse climbing a milestone,’ scaled the Boulder capping the pillar.
