Mark Kemball:

I met Arthur Birtwhistle (sic) (first ascecionist) and he said how glad he was to find a spike at the top of the first main pitch (above the groove). With that they had a secure belay and knew they could ab off if neccessary. Go look at that rounded thing on the ledge that they called a spike. They were tough back then! [1]
