/ Single pitch crags near Okehampton - advice
Many thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Irish Man's Wall is I think the closest moorland venue to Okehampton. Not been there myself, but looks good. Dartmoor grades can feel tough though.
Further afield, there's loads of great single pitch venues on the moor. Sheepstor or the left hand side of The Dewerstone might be a good bet and not too far. Slightly further to Hound Tor/Haytor/Chudleigh etc. All good venues.
Beat me to it!
Thanks for the suggestions - I'll take a look at them all and see where I end up.
Sheeps Tor is by far the best I think for what you want. Walking access top and bottom. The rock is less 'Tor' like and more like conventional granite. It has a good selection of low grade roots.
Downside it is polished and is often overun with beginners group.
Jonathan, there are a couple of routes on West Cleave that are used by the local YHA/Activity centre there are stakes set up at the top. You'll find it just south up the East Ockment valley from Fatherford Viaduct.
