Parked up at Yad Moss and made way down trail before striking for the summit by loosely following one of the fairly dry streams. Low cloud (ever descending) made it quite eerie on the top with visibility down to about 30m. Not good weather for any ‘viewing’!madaddo10/07/2019
As Nuttall route 9.6 and still largely pathless on the tops. Overcast day but generally dry going.milimana19/05/2019

Cycled from Cow Green c/p via old miners track to NW to second mine ruin at NY 783 327. Left bike and walked to high point. Cairn made of flat stones with 1m long pole made locating the top quite simple.John Lee04/11/2017
I stopped on the B6277 near Crookburn Bridge and climbed Viewing Hill. There were maybe only 150 feet of ascent once the old mine track had been left.peter4lc06/05/2017
Walked from the road on my own. Dry and pleasant. A bit breezy but the wind wasn't cold so it was fine.flockwatcher30/04/2017

Parked to N of hill, good track until sharp turn R, then up gill to grassy bench above. Followed this and easy peat hag area to cairn at top.Aye Jimmy04/06/2013
Basically the Nuttalls' route. Route N from summit to B6277 hard-going due to many peat hags. High cloud cover, but dry. Deep lying snow in gullies.marktrengove03/03/2013
Bellbeaver and Viewing Hill following Nuttall's route. Lots of booms from Mickle Fell.rhalstead19/02/2013

First of three Nutalls for me today. Followed the Nutall route in reverse i.e. parked to the north then followed path south then approached summitt off the path from the NW. An innocent enough mopuntain but not one that will enthuse people!Father Ted05/06/2012

This was one of the hardest tops to find but it was quite fun wandering around it in pleasant weather. The sheep at the start counted me out and counted me back! Very watchful creatures!ruthatlast15/10/2011
With Dad from Garigill. Not a particularly thrilling peak either. Last peak of the day, then followed road and ultimately South Tyne Way back to Garigill. Day with lots of bog trotting. Don't care to repeat in a hurry.AGWilliamson13/06/2011
