Hill features

Hound Tor is a popular place for many reasons.

First made famous after Sherlock Holmes' encounter with a grim and fearfull beast that can still be seen on nights with a full moon. In recent times its popularity stems from its sheep trimmed lawns which are a pinicing paradise (great place for the family while you climb), the large car park and the views from the summit, all of which bring holidaymakers from far and wide.

A huge number of scrambles and easier problems are possible, however to avoid uncessarily clutter, not all of them need to be written up, please use discretion.
