Haytor (aka Hay Tor) and Low Man


Climbs 79 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 400m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Fine climbing up to 90ft on Haytor and 150ft on Low Man, some just that bit too long for bouldering (though plenty to be found nearer the ground). Some of the best and longest routes on Dartmoor, with rough granite feldspar giving rounded overhangs, flakes, breaks and cracks. Haytor will delight the sub-E1 climber, while Low Man offers more for those on E2 and above. interrogation is a must and aviation too!

Access notes
On the A38, if approaching from the N follow signs to Bovey Travey and then signposts to Haytor. From the S exit the A38 at Ashburton, then follow signs to Widecombe and Haytor. There is a car park below the main tor: follow the broad green track, which takes you to Haytor's W face. Low Man is to the SW (on your L).

we finished a climb in the dark but accidentally left a 20cm quickdraw and a nut on the ground somewhere, please do keep an eye out as I would like to give my friend his gear back! []

There is now an abseil point that someone has kindly placed at the top of Bridal Piton Slab. This makes what was a tricky descent much safer, so no excuses not to have a crack at the north face routes!
