hearsay Captain Joseph Budworth, guided by 15 year old Paul Postlethwaite, climbed Pavey Ark, 7 Novermber 1797. The captain had lost an arm at the Seige of Gibraltar, 1779-82. He became crag fast on:-
a sward nearly perpendicular, and of immoderate height
He tied a handkerchief over one eye, so that he couldn't look down, and held out his walking stick for Paul to lead him down.
