Lynch Tor

It’s June and time to lengthen the mileage walked, I headed first over tors I have visited before in the Staple Tors and Roos Tor. However this time I carried on to Cocks Hill (not worth the effort!) and Lynch Tor (more than made up for Cocks Hill), before doubling back to White Tor. Finishing with a leg busting haul up to Cox Tor (should have stayed lower through the dip!!).

The Lych Way, the bumps in the distance I think are Beardown Tors.
