12-05-2023 - The Nab with Paul D and Andy


Today's goal was to reach the summit of The Nab, a fell I hadn't stood on for almost 21 years. Paul and Andy needed to get it ticked off following an aborted attempt from Martindale last summer. We set off from the car park in Hartsop village heading, initially, towards Satura Crag. We then skirted around the western flank of Rest Dodd before tackling the final climb onto The Nab. Parts of the walk felt quite arduous but nevertheless very satisfying. While Paul and I plodded along Andy found enough energy to pay his first visits to Brock Crags and Rest Dodd.

That's The Nab done. And not a deer in sight
