Approach notes

At the Eastern end of Burrator Resevoir is Norsworthy Bridge and a parking area. From here head South Eastish along a track, passing the ruins of a building on the right, until the track opens out and a paths leads on across a couple of field. On the hillside directly in front of you will a fine smattering of boulders, the largest of which is at the top of the hill and called Cuckoo Rock.

Climbed the large chimney on the main tor ~10m. Anybody know if its a route?
