Rough Tor summit area...it all kicks off here in Jamaica Inn
A very easy stroll on a hazy summer evening. The climb to Rough Tor is up the most benign grassy slope imaginable, although the scramble to the utmost point is good fun. The onward journey is initially over boulders, but then more grass ensues before an obvious and straightforward path leads to the less interesting but higher Brown Willy.

On the return it is better to aim right of the summit of Rough Tor to regain the route of ascent...this avoids the boulders.

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 2h 6m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
