Ken Ringwood, in his book, places Crip Tor on Private Land, on a short rise at the back of a farm with the same name. It is a worthy contender, consisting of a number of large smooth rounded outcrops, with lower bedrock spilling beyond the fence into some almost impenetrable open access land. There are further outcrops to the west, within private woodland.
However, the actual location for this tor is disputed, with other evidence placing it elsewhere. Whilst mentioned by Crossing, in his guide, he affords no description of Crip Tor, and Hemery only refers to the farm.
Mike Brown, in his Gazetteer places it south-east of Swell, and there is evidence of this position being favoured on the Tithe Map for the Parish of Walkhampton.
