  4. [S71] - compiler, Various Published Sources, The idea of forming a climbing club for lovers of the Lake District had been maturing in the minds of a small group of enthusiastic young mountaineers who lived on the fringes of the area. Two, E. H. P. Scantlebury and Alan Craig of Ulverston, called an informal meeting at the Sun Hotel, Coniston.

    Well known Lake District mountain lovers had previously been circularized, and the response was good. The Fell and Rock Climbing Club of the English Lake District was thus formed in 1906. Before the end of the year upwards of forty members had been enrolled, and several distinguished mountaineers were asked to become honorary members, among them W. C. Slingsby, W. P. Haskett-Smith and Professor L. R. Wilberforce.Among the aims of the club were those of encouraging safety in the sport of fell walking and rock climbing and promoting friendship and comradeship among mountain lovers. The official quarters of the club were: The Wastwater Hotel, Wasdale Head; the Sun Hotel, Coniston; Middlefell Farm, Dungeon Ghyll, Langdale; Jopson's Farm, Thorneythwaite, Borrowdale, and Buttermere Hotel, Buttermere, to which was later added the Woolpack Hotel in Eskdale.

    (2) 90 feet. A wet chimney is backed up for about 60 feet till the gully widens out, when, after a few feet, holds on thc wall can be used until the top of the chockstone is within reach. These holds are very doubtful and it is possible to break out on the right wall and traverse left to the top of the pitch.

    (4) 100 feet. An easy but loose grassy chimney with a chockstone about half-way up. which can be passed on the left, leads to huge belay.

  6. [S71] - compiler, Various Published Sources, 1910 EASTER KESWICK BROTHERS CLIMB - SCAFELL (Grade IV?)
    T.C. Ormiston–Chant, Scantlebury.
    First recorded winter ascent.
    “ I lost my axe when half way up Keswick Brothers Climb. It was nearly dark and
    Scantlebury and I spent a weary hour in chipping steps with a wedge of rock in a
    huge fringe of ice above Botterill’s Slab, hoping to avoid a descent. A cheery hail
    from Hollow Stones brought two good Samaritans to the top of the climb, and the ring
    of their axes in the hard ice kept us company for another hour whilst they cut down to
    within a rope length of us. The rescuers were Worthington and Gemmel.”
    Ormiston-Chant, T.C. 1919, “In Memoriam: Claude Swanwick Worthington”,
    F&RCC, Vol 5, 1, p 91-93.
    “Easter 1910 - Scantleberry and I started up Keswick Brothers Climb as dusk came
    on and found the finish so badly iced as to make it impossible. We were hauled out
    by two kind hearted companions.”.
