Hill features

Several routes can be soloed above reasonable landings with also some bouldering possibilities. Predominantly sound rock and very pleasant in sunny weather. 

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.
