Napes Needle
Napes Needle

Explanation: Napes Needle is on the southern flank of Great Gable, at the head of Wasdale in the Lake District. The Needle was first climbed by Walter Parry Haskett-Smith in June 1886, an ascent which may have marked the birth of rock climbing as a sport in its own right. This picture shows (left to right) Nick Jeffery, David Jeffery and Colin Lowe on top of the Needle with Wast Water in the background.
