East Wray Cleave Tor

East Wrey Cleave Tor

At the north-western end of East Wray Cleave can be found a magnificent cliff face of granite jutting out from the steep, precarious hillside below a forestry track.

Presenting as a white-faced giant, the tor can hardly be discerned from above for you have to carefully descend the uneven slopes to fully appreciate the scale, the slopes in summer being bracken-infested and quite tricky to traverse.

Below the main attraction, there is a sprawling clitter culminating in another pile, albeit a scruffy one at SX 78237 83079 (pictured below), this situated right on the boundary of the access land. Brought to our attention by Jake Parrish, it is he who we thank for alerting us to the existence of such a grand rockpile in this part of the Wray Valley.
