As moorsman (parked at SX 25777 73047) but after passing through gate onto access land we climbed Sharp Tor first - a cracking little top - then onto Langstone Downs.David Gradwell11/09/2017
Piles of rocks at the top.Alancache03/08/2017
Continuation from Newel Tor. Descended south-east to the Withey Brook, fording it by stepping stones after a gate. Then ascended south-east to the summit. Also visited the much finer Sharp Tor, as only 1m lower. To return, headed north over the east shoulder of Kilmar Tor and down to join the track from Trewortha which became the lane of my outward route. Solo.Man of Kernow111/04/2017
Superb sunny round of 7 Bodmin tumps. Three large cairns on top, central one highest. The Access land is not continuous at Wardbrook farm to the south so care is needed.Denise 22/10/2016
