Summit Type: Grassy/Boggy/Flat

Range: Pennines
Situated directly to the east of Whernside, this area of high boggy moorland can be an unpleasant place in bad weather, its name is very fitting. But on a clear day the summit 'Crag of Blea Moor' provides some superb views of Whernside and north towards Wild Boar Fell. The Blea Moor Tunnel, part of the Settle-Carlisle line, runs underneath this moor and the air shafts for the tunnel are easy to find from the path too.
