Cuckoo Rock, Combshead Tor and Down Tor 12/5/2010

Wednesday has become a day for going on evening
stroll with good friends, bought about by the climbing wall closing for the summer.

                          So this wednesday myself , George, Anna and Mary headed out from burrator following the track past the ruined buildings we ventured along with the two dogs leading the way, heading for Cuckoo rock to check out the bouldering options, a trip with the climbing shoes could be called for next time.

From Cuckoo Rock we headed up to Combshead Tor, scouting out a few camping spots which should afford some nice views of the sunset and sunrise, will no doubt post some photo's up at some point after i've ventured back out with camera and tent.

Heading north from Combshead we reached the rather intreaging ring cairn with 31 granite stones 11m diameter with a 350m stone row stretching away from it. A view well worth making the walk out to see, tho the stop there was short due to the dropping sun and losing of light, we cracked on heading up over Down Tor to watch a gorgeous sun set dropping down with leather and leaden Tors in the foreground.
