Hill features

Several routes can be soloed above reasonable landings, also some bouldering possibilities. Predominantly sound rock and ery pleasant in sunny weather, fairly grim in fog.

A short but intense walk-in leads to the first of the 4 main crags, however only Cranberry Tor is currently open to climbers.

Nice but, underwhelming from a climber's perspective.
