Slightly misguided training for Troll Wall © Mark Davis

Crag features

Hound Tor is a popular place for many reasons.

First made famous after Sherlock Holmes' encounter with a grim and fearfull beast that can still be seen on nights with a full moon. In recent times its popularity stems from its sheep trimmed lawns which are a pinicing paradise (great place for the family while you climb), the large car park and the views from the summit, all of which bring holidaymakers from far and wide.

A huge number of scrambles and easier problems are possible, however to avoid uncessarily clutter, not all of them need to be written up, please use discretion.

Restricted Access


Ravens have been reported to be nesting in the crack next to Suspension Flake. Please avoid this and adjacent routes during this period.

Birds (unspecified) are also reported to be nesting behind the pulpit.
