On a trip along Pollalie Ridge back in '08, my buddy Tom and  I encountered this inscription.  We had needed to drop a bit, some 100 feet for maybe 100 yards to avoid a few undoggable rock formations.  Dropped up just at the “e” of Polallie Ridge on the 15’ topo.  On a tree at that spot, in a half overgrown blaze, Fred Steiner had left his mark on 22nd June 1916.  Tree is now a beautiful silver snag, its growth presumably halted by the lightening that preserved Fred’s legacy.

As Harry Majors has pointed out the now fading L. Lindsley carved onto the rock was Lawrence "Lawrie" Lindsley. Here is a photo of Lawrie working near Gold Creek where the Denny family held claim to the Esther Mine.

Here is a photo of Lawrence "Lawrie" Lindsley. It was taken on August 20, 1912 near Lake Chelan. Lawrence Lindsley is with his horse Peanut and his dog Bobbie.
