Mark Davidson walked up Bellbeaver Rigg (Tynehead Fell) on October 25th, 2012 [from/via/route] Walk c443 Round Hill & Bellbeaver Rigg from Garrigill [with] Alone [weather] Wet & miserable - loved it!

Angela Moroney climbed Bellbeaver Rigg (Tynehead Fell) on May 18th, 2021 [from/via/route] kirkstone [with] Jane ludders [weather] sun wind

Darren Mortimer bagged Bellbeaver Rigg (Tynehead Fell) on March 30th, 2019 [from/via/route] Garrigill using walk c443 [with] Dermot Palmer [weather] overcast. no rain - What a bloody awful walk this is. Starts out so nice too. Peak bagging & nothing more.

Kevin Foster summited Bellbeaver Rigg (Tynehead Fell) on May 19th, 2018 [from/via/route] Garrigill. [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny. - The first section of the walk, which followed the infant river Tyne as it cascaded over waterfalls & through narrow wooded gorges, was lovely & made this a walk I'll certainly remember. In complete contrast the next section left the South Tyne trail to head up over pathless heather & grass moorland to the top of the fell, which from its other name (Tynehead Fell) must be the source of the river South Tyne although the very dry conditions meant I did not see the source. The top itself has two large cairns, about 200 m apart, the westerly one being slightly higher, I think. The views give a real sense of remoteness, distant fells in every direction across miles of desolate moorland. These northern pennine hills, even on a sunny day, give you a real wilderness feel & appear to be hardly visited at all.

Christine Shepherd conquered Bellbeaver Rigg (Tynehead Fell) on April 2nd, 2017 [from/via/route] Walked from Garrigill using walk c443 [with] On my own [weather] Glorious spring sunshine with a light breeze. - Wonderful views from this summit especially towards Cross Fell.

Ray O'hara scaled Bellbeaver Rigg (Tynehead Fell) on June 25th, 2013 [from/via/route] Straight out & back walk from B6277 [weather] ok - Not too bad, nice views, some attempt at drainage out there so the bogs weren't too bad.
