Sharp Tor (Bodmin Moor, Cornwall)

Climbs 86 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 353m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Sharp Tor looks impressive from the road but closer inspection reveals that it is small and pretty broken. Whilst there are some short easy routes to be found on the South Face,there is also something to interest the mid to lower grade boulderer.

Approach notes
For Sharp Tor itself, drive through Henwood and follow signs for Sharp Tor. Eventually a rough lay-by is reached. Park here and walk to Sharp Tor along the path.

To reach the North-East Spur either take the same route or park at 268 742 and walk partway up the quarry track which leads to Bearah Tor Quarry.

What's going on???? I just told Barnaby there is nothing left on this Tor worth a fart.... V3s V4s Steinburg you worked in secret with that s***t Hudson to steal...steal I say, after all this is the Tor I wished to be scattered over on my death. There is no 'I' in Forgive.......well there is but you get the idea!
