Little Staple Tor

As its name suggests Little Staple Tor is the lowest of the Staple tors. However, unlike the other two Staple tors, it lacks any granite stacks instead the granite rocks (clitter) are scattered wide. The views however are just as good, with fine views to Kings Tor and North Hessary Tor as well as across Pew Tor to Plymouth Sound. There is no military range near this tor.
