Lovely walk on good paths (until the rough scrambly reascent of Holwell Tor) among the spectacular rocky tors, and the crowds, to the south of Dartmoor. Scrambles to the two main summits - Haytor Rocks manageable thanks to the grab irons, Hound Tor a very tricky and exposed little climb that some were using ropes for... Good fun all round.
