Wray Cleave Middle Tor

Not far from the main tor is this equally impressive outlier dubbed 'Middle Tor'. It consists of three main piles, one of which forms an elegant stack rising from the wooded floor.

The other outcrops here contain great features including a xenolith.

Thanks goes to Max Piper for first noticing the rock piles here on old Ordnance Survey Maps.
