Nuttalls route. Rough but reasonable underfootGary Heath21/07/2019
As Nuttall route 9.6 and still largely pathless. There are a lot of new-looking dykes, both of stone and rope, around the summit area to hold up water.milimana19/05/2019

From head of pass. Viewing Hill and Bellbeaver Rigg (reverse of Nuttalls Route). The cairn to the west is definately higher and the OS map concurs. Descent down the syke was surprisingly pleasant on a sunny day.ijpowell21/06/2014
From head of Tyne Head road out of Garrigill is large modern sculpture marking 'Source of South Tyne' where water emerges from spring, marked by cairn. Straight up hill behind passing several mine shafts, capped with beehive cairns. Cairn on top, another about 200m away, went there but definitely looks lower.Aye Jimmy04/08/2013

Having just climbed Round ill, I decended to the Tyne Head path and came up to this one directly from the west. Pretty good underfoot. After pausing briefly on the top for a celebratory bannana I headed east again back to the car. Heathery but not too boggy or groughy.Father Ted05/06/2012
