Great Staple Tor - Saturday, Nov 15, 2008
Great Staple Tor lies on the same plateau as Roos Tor between Cox Tor and Great Mis Tor. Views on a clear day would be excellent, but the tor was up in the clouds when I visited. Easiest to reach from one of the car parks on the main roas past Cox Tor, but I parked at Lawn Corner and walked via Roos Tor.
