Dartmoor: The Tors of Tavy Cleave

The ground was grassy but firm underfoot, and only needed a couple of stops to control the breathing. We entered the cloud close to the first outcrop of this collection known as Tavy Cleave Tors.

Finding Little Hare took longer than anticipated. I recalled, rightly or wrongly, a previous walk with Richard Flint (@FlintyRich), where the terrain was steep and had a fair amount of clitter. I chose to give the direct route a wide berth, as it would likely be difficult to navigate in these conditions. We found it, via a more gentle descent, and then attempted to head due south for Ger Tor.

I felt no pangs of regret returning to my hot shower, central heating, and comfortable bed, and would rejoin them all, for breakfast, tomorrow.
