Mountain Climber - Great Staple Tor, Dartmoor

We started our climb up the Great Staple Tor at sunset. It was so windy at the top that flying the drone was out of the question. @eyeseesurs braved the gale force winds to climb this tor and pose for this shot. One the topic, Tors are landforms created by the erosion and weathering of rock. A lot of them look like old man-made fortifications. Many hypotheses have been proposed to explain their origin, and it remains a topic of discussion among geologists. These tors are around 280 million years old.
