Description 

Dartmoor... Renowned for its desolate moors, ancient stones and excellent granite tors; notorious for its foul weather and penchant for getting people lost. The crisp granite to be found here provides a welcome alternative to the ubiquitous limestone in the South West. Haytor is the most popular of these tors (with climbers and tourists alike) and is worth a weekend or more.

Others are surely more qualified to introduce this region than I; please update this page as you will.

Getting There

Enjoyable climbing through and through with a perplexing crux. From the left side of Raven Gully pull up to a flake inside a tight corner bounded by the arete. Sort some pro here and swing tenuously around the arete onto the face (crux). Proceed joyfully up the steep slab just left of the arete with good holds and pro. At a large ledge near the top step further left to finish easily to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
