Climbed from car park at SX 561 749 via track which skirts past Little Mis Tor. Returned same way. Summit tor (with firing range flag-pole) can be easily ascended on the eastern side. Dry and breezy weather, started bright but became overcast. Dogs had a great time. Lovely, but rather bleak, views.jamessteel10030/03/2024

From the Pump House car park on the B 3357. Took a direct line north to join the track up to Little Mis Tor, then path through clitter to the summit - no scrambling needed. Returned the same way. One of the great tors on the moor. Solo.Man of Kernow104/05/2019

On my 100 tors in 25 hours outing. Walk up chatting to Becks whilst simultaneously refuelling with a bowl of porridge and banana. Her son admirably fulfilled the teenager stereotype by tagging along behind with his music headphones on and offering monosyllabic responses in lieu of conversation. Clambered up Little Mis Tor en route to this multi tor top ( although only one counts)with swathes of clitter on its west slope which made for slow progress ( not a run) down west to the stream. Comical name sounds like its from a Mr Men book .Chris Pearson22/07/2018

out and back from small parking area of B3357, high wind and hail on way back.rhalstead05/03/2017
Solo walk from Rundlestone on a glorious sunny day, ground mostly frozen making the boggy section below the tor easier to cross than it looks like it would be. Far-reaching views across to Bodmin Moor and into Dartmoor's empty inner spaces. Dropped down to the west to visit the brilliant prehistoric settlement remains in the valley, then south to the stone rows and stone circle. Deliberately missed the last bus to prolong the day and walked back to Tavistock.thesweetcheat23/01/2017

Before Tom's wedding from pumphouse. Bit wet underfoot at start but otherwise good underfoot. Watch when approaching North Hessary Tor. The stile after the passing place on the mast approach road is a false trail - keep on to the mast.SS28/06/2014
