Mostly Dark Peak, with less navigational features and fewer options for escape  e.g. Kinder, Bleaklow, Roaches, Edges, Ladybower, Castleton

13 Grade 1

14 Grade 2

15 Grade 3

16 Accident Potential Hazard  Something with the potential to cause an incident Accident Potential  No. of human hazards multiplied by no. of environmental hazards
