Little Sharpitor

This small tor sits immediately to the north of Sharpitor proper, and is completely dominated by it which could be the reason why this obvious outcrop has not been given any recognition until now.

Whilst it sits amid the extensive clitter of its larger neighbour, Little Sharpitor is not connected its massive bulk, and, when seen from atop Sharpitor, is a separate entity, or outlier. To access, park at one of the large car parks on the B3212 road north of here.

It was first described by Rob Naylor on 'Dartefacts'; "On a whim I decided this little rocky outcrop deserved a name. It is set just enough away from Sharpitor to feel like a little rock island that deserves a little recognition."
