I love this route, and make sure that I do it every time that I am up in the Lakes. I prefer the clockwise route going up Nab Scar. It provides great views back down the lake, or at the top of St Sundays or Hellvellyn. It actually provides the most vertical in terms of the horseshoes aorund that area. If you are also feeling like a bit more of a challenge you can head off at Dove Crag and put in Red Screes as well!
