Up excellent line from Grange - Borrowdale Gates Hotel - Swanesty How - Cockley How - Nitting Haws. Good path all way through bracken this time of years, super views down off summit into Borrowdale. 340m climb, back same way in 30 mins.nordicstar14/07/2017

Last of 8 hills on a round from Borrowdale YHA. Descended directly from High Spy N Top over steep rough ground. Nitting Haws, a fine rocky boss, looks far more spectactular from the valley, but it's ok from up here also although overshadowed by its higher and larger neighbour High Stele Knott. Interesting descent trying to follow the path the runs beneath the crag; ended up with some challenging rock climbing, and very steep scree slopes.jonglew06/03/2017
Back packing Honister to Grange. Glad of the site photo to help Id.Eddie27/10/2015
Large f/p opposite Borrowdale Gates Hotel at N end of Grange leads straight up to grassy shoulder high on the hill. Excellent f/p across below summit cliffs lands on Nitting Haws. Slightly lower rocky outcrop to the east is fine viewpoint. Continued to Low Scawdel.Aye Jimmy08/10/2015

A superb viewpoint. If returning down the footpath towards Grange careful navigation is required to ensure that you stay on its used line. If you stray off, going too far east you will finish up on steep, unstable scree which has the potential to send you careering downwards. If you reach the start/end of this scree, do not proceed but check where the path actually is.moorsman21/06/2014
With Jo, linear walk from Grange: Nitting Haws via drove road, High Spy North Top (Blea Crag), Maiden Moor, descending to Lodore. Weather; sunny, warm, good visibility.amblerbob19/04/2014
Low cloud, cold and windy, so decided to visit Borrowdale viewpoints as a complete change. Little lump of Nitting Haws hardly a summit but a great view, and easy, pleasant stroll to Low Scawdel, followed by pleasant contouring to the hause below High Scawdel. Glad I did this. High Crags, Maiden Moor, High Spy North Top, Nitting Haws, Low Scawdel, High Scawdel, Newlands valley.ijpowell28/03/2014
