Lynch Tor (Rowe), The Sphinx
Located deep within the high North Moor, Lints Tor is often nicknamed 'The Sphinx' because of its resemblance to the statue beside the Pyramids of Giza.
The highest of the piles here is most prominent, showing an obvious intrusion of differing granites; as explained by Josephine Collingwood in Dartmoor Tors Compendium, coarser grained granite has been intruded along with fine grained granite, causing severe erosion in the main outcrop.
Hemery comments; "Shaping the course of the brook, and peninsulated by it and the river, is the conical hill crowned by the rocks of Lints Tor (approx. 1,600 feet). Dwarfed though it is by the great hills forming the slopes of the W. Ockment Ravine, it makes a notable contribution to the wild scenery here and is, amusing to note, over a hundred feet higher than Hey Tor (Bovey)!"
