Haytor is Dartmoor's largest tor and, along with the Dewerstone, one of its major climbing attractions. The climbing is uniformly pleasurable and the views from the summit are impressive, although being one of Devon's most popular tourist attractions, Haytor does not include solitude amongst its many credentials.
The tor is split into two lumps - High Man and Low Man. The huge brow of Low Man is one of Dartmoor's finest faces and one of its biggest at a height of around 30m. Low Man is home to a couple of the region's best Extremes and, although not totally out of the public gaze, is much quieter than nearby High Man. High Man is also a good crag, although shorter and less impressive than Low Man and very popular with walkers and day visitors.
