Sheeps Tor Devon, ENGLAND
Climbs 37 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces E
Excellent climbing for the lower-grade climber with routes up to 35ft. Eminently worthwhile routes despite the lack of height. Recommendations include Mushroom Wall (VS 4c) and Wind Wall (HVS 5a). Also Sheltered Crack (VD).

From the village of Sheepstor, head N to another road (signposted The Kennels). This goes to within a few hundred metres of the tor.

Max it looks like Barking Variation VDiff. See the link above from the South Devon Mountaineering Club and it seems to be illustrated on their topo.|

Between Dandelion and Barking crack there is a leftward slanting flake. I would say about Severe grade. It is not on UKC or in the Cordee guide book. Anybody know if it has a name? Seems to obvious a feature not to.

Seems to be significantly more polished then when I first climbed here (2004ish), not surprising really considering its popularity.
