Kevin Foster hiked The Dodd on March 2nd, 2019 [from/via/route] Nenthead. [with] Henry. [weather] Cloudy, turning to driving rain & a bitter cold wind. - Back in the car & a short drive to Nenthead to bag the final North Pennine top on my list - The Dodd. Usually, people talk about 'leaving the best until last' sadly I cannot say this was the case with The Dodd. Even the name is a bit of a joke because a flatter fell you will not find. At some disused quarries just before the junction with the road to Allenheads (named as The Rake on maps) I set off across Black Hill which is in fact a heathery bog!. After a small rise following the wall it turned sharply left (in the wrong direction) & I was left with no option but to head on in roughly the same direction over very rough ground with no paths. After approximately half a mile I spotted a small pile of stones which marked the summit of this vast flat fell. My camera phone died on me so I couldn't even get a photo of this momentous occasion. The wind & rain (which had been light up until now) really came on strong & my return back the way I had come was into the prevailing wind. I followed Isaac's tea trail back into Nenthead to vary & try to shorten my return journey but it seemed to take just as long. A very wet & bedraggled man & his dog reached my parked car in Nenthead Mines car park. Nevertheless you have to take the rough with the smooth & I am very proud that I have managed to complete all of the North pennines tops....Now onto The Peak District....Then The Lakes!

Darren Mortimer summited The Dodd on October 8th, 2017 [from/via/route] Nenthead [with] Dermot Palmer [weather] Nice warm sunny day - Shit walking over moors

Christine Shepherd conquered The Dodd on May 9th, 2017 [from/via/route] Walked there & back from Nenthead, starting along Isaac's Tea Trail. [with] On my own [weather] Perfect walking weather. - Did this in the morning before driving to High Force to bag Binks Moss.

Mark Davidson scaled The Dodd on July 21st, 2008 [with] Alone [weather] Rough going with plenty of bog despite good dry weather

Ray O'hara climbed The Dodd on August 21st, 2012 [from/via/route] Just walked in from the "minor road to Nenthead" from walk DU116 [weather] Overcast - Yet another dreadful bog to traverse (when will the rain end this summer?). The "tussocky grass" near the summit was pretty hard going too.

Kate Colbrook and Trevor Williams have both walked, climbed & bagged The Dodd.
