Great Gable

A famous peak in the Western Lakes but a severe climb (no, I didn't do it). The tiny rock looking like a vulture near the bottom left is the 'challenging' Napes Needle.

The first ascent by Walter Parry Haskett Smith of the detached pinnacle of Napes Needle in June 1886 (now graded Hard Severe) is thought by many to mark the origins in England of rock climbing as a sport in its own right, as opposed to a necessary evil undergone by mountaineers on their way to the summit.
