Kirkland > Greg's Hut > Cross Fell > Little Dun Fell > Great Dun Fell > Knock Old Man > Meldon Hill > Viewing Hill > Round Hill > Greg's Hut > Kirkland. One of the hardest and most ambitious walk I have ever done. Hardest bag was the walk to Meldon Hill from Knock Old Man due the the terrain. Otherwise the hardest parts were the river crossings required for the route I took. Drizzly rain for pretty much all the time and had to walk to Greg's hut and back from/to Kirkland in dark with head torch. Solo. Don't know how far I walked but my watch said 64,000 steps / 6,000 kcsl mostly 'off-piste'.axoree14/08/2019

Nuttalls route. Bit of a slog across the fell but good view of Cow Green from the summitGary Heath21/07/2019
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
