After Yes Tor, from Res CP.bevandy11402/09/2019
Run from Sourton Church up over Sourton Tor’s along the old railway to Great Links Tor. I t took me a few minutes to remember the easiest climb to the actual summit which was very easy as the only technical move is low down. I headed on to the remains of Bleak House. I remember camping by it in 1990 and it was a lot more substantial then. I took the path up to Kitty Tor. The cloud broke and it was warm in the sunshine. I headed down to Sandy Ford and then up High Willhays and Yes Tor before running back to Sourton via the top end of Meldon reservoir. For the 11 miles it took 2 hours 30 minutes. I saw Wheatear, Linnets, Skylark, Meadow Pipit, Buzzard, Kestrel and Ravens.isabelle04/08/2019

Not exactly the most beautiful walk. Started at Meldon Reservoir. Cloud base was approx 350m so didn't have any views. Nice to practic navigation skills though. Marched up Longstone Hill, then cross country to meet the Yes Tor - High Willhays track, up to HW, then over to YT, then back on the tracks/paths via Black Down. Beware that there seem to be some extra tracks which are not marked on OS; it would be easy to get pretty lost in the fog if you're not concentrating! The pool at SX564922 is worth a short detour.jkl30/12/2018

From Meldon Reservoir car park - Windy Cloud down with persistent rain - Longstone Hill - Black Tor - Why are wee doing this? Over the rough grasses /faint tracks we find High Willhays summit cairn not realising we are there. Finding Yes Tor (& Trig) beyond we return to the summit and then head back down across Oakhampton Common. Still windy, in cloud and very wet. The joys of hill walking.

Climbed in glorious conditions as part of a 26.8 Km circuit of all Dartmoor 600m hills, starting from Row Tor car park. Blue skies, hot sun, infinite visibility. Fast track heading south to Hangingstone, peat bog to Whitehorse, then very tiring high tussock grass over the side of Black Hill and up to Cut Hill. On return leg, high tussock grass to Dinger, then easy walking to High Willhays, Yes, and return to Row Tor. A fabulous solo walk.Dartmoorman22/06/2018

A county top outing of six mile's taking three hours from the free car park at Meldon reservoir.

Walked up from Meldon reservoir car park. Followed the track around Longstone Hill. Continued up to Yes Tor and along the ridge to High Willhays. Rather bizzarely, got pestered by bees while at the summit - where did they come from? Fine views from the top. Back down via Black Tor through some boggy patches and boulder fields to the river valley, then back to car park. Took about 4 hours.The Gardener10/08/2017

From Yes Tormick04/09/2015
When I arrived at Meldon Reservoir at 9am there was only one other car in the car park, though it was full when I returned. I took the lane down to the dam, crossed it and followed a track which soon turned inland and uphill, gradually curving southwards and with the flagpole on Yes Tor already visible. High Willhays is two metres higher and there is a track between the two, but a herd of cattle sat on it, so I took lower ground to the east before emerging on the summit. Not having walked here before, I looked at the impressive panorama dotted with tors on each skyline but recognised nothing, an unusual feeling. I headed down towards Black Tor but found myself some way south of it and had more cattle to avoid before picking up the track by which I had ascended, now in glorious late morning sunshine.peter4lc12/08/2015

from resv.. a nice easy walk to the long planned, eagerly anticipated summit of Dartmoor - the most southerly of the hewitts. only 29 to go now. summit is not quite a typical Dartmoor tor in that the top isn't that much of an outcrop. returned via the ancient woods and the naughty naughty no access path.stig_nest28/06/2015
Windy, cold and the summit was up in the clouds (ca. 20m visibility) - did it the old way - map, compass and pacing - just to be sure that I still can. Ponies decided that I looked enough like the farmer to be worth chasing... perhaps he has food in that big bagM3WDD26/06/2015
