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.

Vixen Tor


Great local landmark containing a number of hard routes and quality bouldering in a fantastic setting.

The new landowners do not support climbing at Vixen Tor and won the appeal to have the field containing the crag removed from the CRoW Open Access maps. Dartmoor National Park Authority, The Ramblers, local groups and the BMC are investigating various options to reinstate access including a dedicated public footpath to the Tor

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.
