High Seat

Overview
Height: 1,995 Feet - 608 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 287 180
Area: Central
Ordnance Survey: OL4
Wainwright Guidebook: Three

As a climb, High Seat is less meritorious than its initial approaches and fine situation suggest, due partly to the extreme dreariness of the upper plateau, that not even a rich carpet of heather can dispel, but more particularly due to the universal swampiness of the ultimate slopes.
