Ramps Gill Round clockwise from St Peter's Church with Jim, Jus & Cat, on a day where the forecast heavy rain thankfully never materialised. 15ht and final hill of the day. A few descent leaps got us across the peat bogs from Rest Dodd. It took rather more effort and time to get Cat and her fear of heights down the terrifyingly steep path descending off Nab End; once down there was a clear, decent path all the way to the north end of the drive leading to The Bungalow. Would only recommend this route in descent as there are private signs at the road end of the path but not at the mountain end.wheresthepath28/09/2019

Parked in Martindale, up to Angle Tarn, over Buck Crag and Satura Crag, started raining and wind very strong and gusty, pushed on to Rest Dodd and down to The Nab. Not too boggy.Mark T21/07/2019
With JGCW16/07/2019
Descended straight down through the deer park following about 6 other people. Clear and obvious path with styles over walls and fences, Why are they still there if they don't want you to go that way. No warning signs until you get down through the park. Other walkers also were oblivious to this valley being a deer park. The signs say they prefer you to avoid the park but don't actually say you cannot go there. Saw more deer the day after on Place Fell.Craig6722/06/2019

The final hill of six Wainwrights with John, Malin and Joel in blazing Easter Saturday sunshine. Not being able to take the easy route down to Martindale and having to walk the long way round is a tad annoying.Richard20/04/2019
