Wray Cleave South Tor

If seen elsewhere this small group of rocks would immediately warrant attention but as it associated with the other fine outcrops of Wray Cleave Wood it is easily overlooked.

Part of the southern edge of the main tor the rocks here are detached from the other piles and like others in the area are covered in vegetation.

It is just below the highest footpath in the cleave, partly hiding within trees.
