As the Covid-19 lockdown eases, access for climbing is opening back up, subject to some measures and restrictions depending on where
you are going. Please make sure you have read and understood our current advice before heading out and apply it alongside RAD advice to ensure access issues don’t develop.
This crag is a great place to go to get away from the crowds at Bonehill or just as somewhere different than the usual Dartmoor Hotspots. It is a widely spread variety of unspoilt Granite boulders with beautiful views as far as Hay Tor. If your starting out, the Short Walls Sector here is particularly good. After a good long walk in go up to the summit and the climbs start around there. For the Short Walls Sector, keep on going right down to the trees.

Parking and Approach
From the back of Bonehill Rocks, take the path North upto Bell Tor and continue upto the summit then on down the dip (great view of the Tor from here)and up the other side to come to Honeybag Tor itself (about 20 mins). For further details visit www.javu.co.uk, the original Dartmoor bouldering source.
Part of the Dartmoor National Park is used by the MoD for training and live-firing exercises. It also offers a wealth of excellent hillwalking and numerous Tors, some of which still have the potential for new climbing development – especially wild bouldering.
The Defence Estates endeavour to support public access (without compromising public safety and military training) and have produced a website with the important safety info and firing times.
