O: 7m high tor at NJ 16013 03280 1m lower (hand level). 930m spot in Notes is boulder at NJ 16231 03483 (a few nearby candidates). Might Sir Hugh have meant the 7m Tor? Would seem obvious choice without hand level. Seen munrotab_v6.2.xls but none the wiser.

O: Tor is about 10m high and is very likely to be the point in Munro's original list, though he removed it in his revision. It is mapped as 940m, 2m lower than the 942m rock further west. Col at NJ 1581 0333 is 931.6m.
S: Leica Disto - lower than 942m rock

I wouldn't describe the summit as a tor! However, the actual lower but bigger tor up here is a pleasant, easy scramble. Solo.Dangerous Dave29/06/2019
