Stacks of Tors !
by Fergalh  28 Dec 2020
As my companion was bagging Tors we took a circular route to Kitty Tor via Gren Tor and Hunt Tor and Steng a tor although there is a more direct route. This tor is topped by a steel pole afterwards we headed for the car via Green Tor, Higher Dunna Goat Tor, Little Dunna Goat Tor, Chat Tor , Hare Tor, Tave Cleave (yes another Tor!), Ger Tor, Little Hare Tor , Doe Tor, Sharp Tor and Brat Tor. 17 Tors bagged for my friend and just two Tops summited for me ! Naturally there was a more direct route back to the peaking place Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B3650/comment/21867/

Short detour worth doing
by Fergalh  28 Dec 2020
On the way back from Kitty Tor to the car park to the west it is worth the detour to Brat Tor to see its interesting prominent stone cross Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/b3650/comment/21868/
