Run from Sourton Church up over Sourton Tors 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
From CP at end of Lane by Dartmoor Inn. First to Brat Tor, with Widgery Cross on its summit, then to Great Links Tor (which I failed to climb, only reaching the trig point), then by the line of the old Rattlebrook peat railway to Kitty Tor and Amicombe Hill, with a military range marker pole on its summit. Back by the rack below Great Links Tor.Nick Down116/07/2019

On a high after GLT so jogged a boggy route to track and boggy bit at the col to capture another Dewey while Ian Brown returned to the car.Dugswell223/08/2014
There is a direct, easy to follow path between Great Links and this summit, however you join it to the north of GLT. This means you effectively travel in the wrong direction to start with. A direct line soon peters out into tussocky grass and bog.moorsman20/08/2014

6 days climbing trip (having just finished my PGCE day before) -to the SW with Bob Dileu. Carried the climbing gear up to Great Links Tor for Bob to lead the Great Flake - VS4c- on the summit tor. A couple of exciting overhang layback moves on the huge flake as the name suggests. Also walked out and back on old railway bed to bag Amicombe Hill (Kitty TorChris Pearson23/06/2002
Visited on Ten Tors 2002 team D0418, then again on Ten Tors 2003 team E0510 (11/05/2003 07:12). Dropping my usual standards for this one as it's unlikely we actually visited the summit.stripybadger11/05/2002
