Dovestones Wall** VD
[Climbers on Dovestones Tor, 3 kb]20m. Worthwhile with a steep start, though inclined to be green and grubby after rain. Begin 2m right of the gully and climb pocketed rock to the slab. Head rightwards until below the overhangs, then back to the left to finish above Dovestone Gully. © ROCKFAX
