Caroline Winter hiked on June 3rd, 2021 [from/via/route] Mardale head CP, Riggindale edge, Rough Crag, The Knott, Rest Dodd, Rampsgill Head, High Raise, Riggindale edge [with] Becky [weather] Cloudy & warm, with dense fog in afternoon - To the outlier Rest Dodd & back, before taking a short cut to Rampsgill head from The Knott, but fog rapidly descended & needed to find Rampsgill Head by gps. Eventually, found High Raise with assistance from man familiar with area, but visibility so poor that unable to find route to Kirsty Pike, so needed to back track down Riggindale.

[weather] Sunny & hot to begin with becoming cloudier later on with a fresh northerly breeze. - The approach from Boredale Hause via Angletarn Pikes is quite interesting with great views along the way of Brothers Water, Kirkstone Pass & Hayeswater. Rest Dodd's remote position at the head of Martindale makes it one for the 'baggers'. The top is marked with a small cairn of stones but the flagpole mentioned in the wainwright books is sadly no longer there.

John Tippins conquered on April 13th, 2016 [from/via/route] Christy Bridge [with] Solo [weather] The day started overcast & dull, the sort of day you want to stay in front of a fire. However, by late morning it was sunny, very little cloud cover & the warmest it's been all week. It didn't last long. By early afternoon it was complete cloud cover, chilly & windy, & from mid/late afternoon there was also a light rain. But still a good day for walking. - Brock Crags was my 107th Wainwright, so I completed half of all the Wainwrights with the first peak of the day.

Rest Dodd is a good climb but the top appeared sooner than expected, the walk to The Nab was very boggy, it must be really bad in wetter weather.
