Mapping Mountains - Hill Reclassifications - The Fours

West Nab (SK 266 939) - 390m Double Sub-Four addition

There has been an addition to the 390m Double Sub-Four category which has recently been discovered by Ed Gradwell, with the details forwarded by his brother; George.  The hill is West Nab (SK 266 939) and it is situated in the Peak District.

390m Double Sub-Fours are sought after rarities for list compilers as they fail to qualify for the main list of The Fours on two counts; height and prominence.  The Fours is published by Europeaklist and also available in bagging tick list format from the Haroldstreet website.

The full details for the hill are:

Summit Height:  395m

OS 1:50,000 map:  110
