Trivia Question

From the first written description of a rock climb recorded by the Fell & Rock Club:

When I find it convenient to descend from a mountain, I am too confident and too indolent to look round about and wind about until I find a track. The first place I came to, that was not direct rock, I slipped down, and went on for a while with tolerable ease -- but now I came (it was midway down) to a smooth perpendicular rock about 7ft high -- this was nothing, I put my hands on the ledge and dropped down ...

Who is describing his precipitate descent of Broad Stand on Sca Fell? (Don't try this at home, folks; lives are lost on Broad Stand with monotonous regularity, generally of people who try this trick!)
