The Star Gazer

This monument, located at the base of the North Ridge's east slope, is quite weathered and much of its inscription is impossible to read. The name appears to be Hollam, followed by the initials or abbreviation L.C.E.. But, while the epitaph is obscured, the carved telescope makes it clear that whomever is buried here had more than a passing interest in astronomy.
