Eric Hemery (1983) in High Dartmoor (p.724) is the first to describe this grand rock stack on Easdon Down as Figgie Daniel. It lies on the slope some 500 metres to the east of the triangulation pillar on Easdon Tor and commands spectacular views towards Great Hound Tor and Hay Tor Rocks.
The stack stands up proudly from the Down and rivals the more famous and celebrated Bowerman's Nose across the valley of the Hayne Brook. It is unknown where the name originated from but it may be related to a moorman who once farmed in the area, the name likely relating to their unusual appearance.
A grassy path links the feature to Easdon Hill and the summit tor there which links to the bridleway by Barracott Farm. A little northward of Figgie Daniel is Bowda Tor, although there is no obvious path to it.
