p373. Reseach by Mike Cocker shows that Baumgartner climbed the Old West. The Old Wall Route was probably climbed by M Barnes and W Grave sometime in the 1870s. The bit below is from the Wasdale Climbing Book page 18. There is a bit more on Baumgartner on page 15/16. "The oral tradition at Wasdale had always credited Matthew Barnes, a quarry worker and occasional mountain guide, with the discovery of the Old Wall Route, on the east face. This was supposed to have been climbed sometime in the 1860s, but Barnes kept a diary which records that his first ascent of Pillar Rock was made on 7th August 1870 with William Grave of Manchester by the Slab and Notch Route or more likely by its easier variation the Ledge and Steep Grass. On that occasion they took a slate to the top of the High Man with their names and the date of their ascent scratched on. The slate remained there, and was used to record subsequent ascents for nearly a decade, until it was filled with signatures and eventually removed by Hermann Woolley who returned it to William Grave. If Barnes did discover the Old Wall Route it wasn’t on the occasion that the slate was deposited and must have been on a later visit. " However, this does not square with Seatree's belief that the Old Wall Route was first climbed in 1866.
