First records of climbing were by Sir George Trevelyan and friends, including Jack Longland, who used to ride on horseback to the Wanneys from the stately pile at Wallington, stopping off at Ray and Wolf crags en route. Gordon Thompson produced a comprehensive guide which was never published, and was responsible for writing the names of some of the routes at the foot of the climbs. This was in the mid 1960's - it's remarkably durable stuff this Dulux Enamel paint. Unaware of this earlier development, Malcolm Lowerson reclimbed all of the lines, added many of his own and produced the current guide. FA's are difficult to attribute as it's usually not possible to work out which lines GT climbed.
