South Devils Tor

This is a reasonable outcrop, a few hundred metres to the south, of the main Devils Tor and Beardown Man. The outcrop sits in a line between Devils Tor and Lydford Tor and is easily found if on this route. The outcrop itself is actually more substantial than Devils Tor, and has some granite that rises out of the ground. The views here are vast, like Devils Tor up the hill, they are 360, especially to the south where the West Dart valley looks superb, with the bookends of Beardown Tor and Longaford Tor either side. This tor is right bang in the middle of the Merrivale firing range so obey the warnings and firing times if looking to venture here.
