Ascent Trip ReportFrom Rough Tor car park. Up the broad grassy slopes up to Rough Tor. Scrambled up to the high point. As with many of the Dartmoor Tors, the tors are easier scrambling up than down because it is difficult to see footholds when down climbing.
Down into the shallow valley separating Rough Tor from Brown Willy and then up on to Brown Willy itself. Here the summit was packed with teenagers on DoE training. It was quiet after they left!
Back via Showery Tor where there is another awkward scramble up to the true high point.
