High Seat (Mallerstang)
High Seat is the highest point in the Mallerstang valley, and is the most northerly of 3 mountains forming the lovely Mallerstang Edge ridge. The boundary between Cumbria and Yorkshire lies directly along this ridge, so it is debatable wether the true summit lies within the Eden Valley and Cumbria, or Yorkshire and the Dales. Either way it is still classed as the 4th highest Dales peak.

It has a steep limestone-cragged western face with a more gentle gradient eastward. The felltop is broad and flat with a classic moorland covering of long tussocky grass, heather and occasional peat hags. The summit has several cairns, but the highest point is only marked with a few stones.

Although slightly less dramatic and imposing than Wild Boar Fell which is situated directly across the valley, it actually stands a metre higher. Paths don't appear to be in abundance on this fell, although there is a reasonable one south to Gregory Chapel.
