Following on from Sam Davenhall's second ascent of Kaizen at Woodwell, South Lakes (See UKC News), we have two historical photographs of first ascentionist John Gaskins repeating the problem for the camera just after his first ascent.

The photos are courtesy of Mark Glaister, climbing photographer and Rockfax author (see his UKC profile).
