651 Giggleswick Scar

For many years new boys at Giggleswick School had to climb Giggleswick Scar and add a stone to the large cairn called the Schoolboys Tower. Alas this tradition at one of Britain's leading public schools has been abandoned, but it's a great place for exploring caves and rocky hillsides and while you're about it you could always add a stone of your own.
