Saddle Tor


Great bouldering place with many brilliant problems and some really quite challenging traverses! Mats are well advised due to the height of some of the problems however the landings are nice and flat. Most of the routes are more difficult than other places with a 6a and above trend but lends itself to some of the best problems around.More detailed route information can be found on Dave Henderson's site which gives an excellent online guide to most of the moor and the surrounding area along with others!Can get a bit blowy up here sometimes as there isn't much in the way of shelter some wrap up warm! Best parking is the second of the two on the right after the top Haytor car park as you can see your car! If you walk in the bonehill direction from the tor for about 300 yards you will come across the excellent hidden traverse which is host to a few nasty traverses! Well worth a look!

Area information

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. Follow this link for the Dartmoor training area homepage and links to detailed info.
