Scafell east butress. Was this route Holy Ghost climbed again, or a variation of it and then given a new name? The FA was Bonington & Thompson. I think that it had a traverse. It isn't mentioned in e.g. FRCC guide "Lake District Rock"

In reply to mockerkin: according to the 1984 guide:
'A meandering climb of mostly historical interest, whose chief justification is as the start of the girdle traverse (Lord of the Rings).'. Climbed in April, 1965.
