Shooter's Nab is a long-abandoned quarry overlooking the town of Marsden, to the southwest of Huddersfield. The quarry is very extensive and would make one of the most impressive venues hereabouts.
The crag faces due north and is at its best on warm summer evenings or as an escape from the heat of summer. A few of the buttresses protrude far enough to catch the afternoon sun and The Rostrum is the most notable of these. The crag is green and unattractive in the winter and best avoided.
Either approach is 30-minutes.
Park by the SE corner of Deer Hill Reservoir before the gate. The road is private (water board) but the local dog walkers and bird watchers use it.
Pass through the gate and over a short stone wall, an old quarry track can be taken which handrails the fence
Pass through the gate and stick to the main path around the resevoir and shooting range. Head up the hillside via a steep footpath. Best for touring the whole crag.
Alternatively, park on the side of the A6107 Meltham Road, just east of Marsden and follow the public right of way to the old quarry road.
