Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Bell Tor faces southwest and the sun for most of the days which is probably why it’s called “Bell” (Druid for Sun). It’s made up of a huge jumble of Granite boulders only a number of which are regularly climbed.
It’s very close to the popular Bonehill Rocks and as such remains very quiet although there are some excellent problems and beautiful views of Widecombe in the Moor. A great place for visitors who’ve finally had enough of Bonehill Rocks and got that itch (but go to Hound Tor first).
Keep Dartmoor Clean and Wild. Take home what you bring and keep to the tracks.
Drive and park on the North of Bonehill (3rd car park) then it's over the road and a 5 minute walk gently uphill. This is the start of a good walk over to Honeybag Tor and is one of a few great Tors within easy walking distance.
|Great crag for bouldering if Bonehill is busy!|
