Little Whiten Tor

There are plenty of tors in this area, most of them better than this one, in fact this is nothing more than a rocky outcrop on the side of a hill. And  hardly any rocks at that. Just treat this as a minor diversion from Higher White Tor to Lower White Tor, take a photo and move on. There is a fair walk to this one, so you are committed on reaching somewhere like Rough Tor if you have got this far, via Crockern Tor and Longaford Tor first. The easiest way to this is to cross the wall behind Higher White Tor and then follow it down the hill towards Crow Tor, the tor will appear to your right. The views are ok, but as you are dropping down the side of the hill the ground around is higher, with Rough Tor in view and Beardown Tor to the south west. You are also on the edge of the Merrivale range here, which starts at Rough Tor/Crow Tor.
