8:00 am 3 Boot: Northern Dartmoor climbs (Joint)

Event Date: Sun 16 July 2017

14.5 miles

Starting at Meldon
Reservoir we first climb the longest face of Yes Tor. Then head to
West Mill Tor before looping around Oke Tor and following the military
tracks back to Dinger Tor. We then head down into whats known locally
as Killer valley and tackling the toughest climb on Dartmoor up to
Kitty Tor. The walk then visits Green Tor and Great Links Tor before
finishing with Sourton Tors.

There is 900m of climbing and although the climbs are tough for
Dartmoor they are no worse than any of the climbs in the Brecons.

However there are two river crossings which required fording in ankle
deep water during the prewalk and several boggy sections so waterproof
boots are a must.
