Leg Instruction
1Park your car at the old school copse toward the top of Merrivale hill (SX 560749)
2From here, you can't see Over Tor however head across the road and onto the moor in a NW direction (321?) and once you come over the top of the rise you will see Over Tor right in front of you
3Once you reach Over Tor, head N and down into a small gully and across till you meet the wall that runs up toward the top of Great Mis Tor.
4Follow the wall all the way up until you are within a couple of hundred meters of the summit and then make your own way to the top across the clitter.
5Views from the summit are magnificent and if the weather is good and the wind not too sharp it's worth spending some time up here just taking it all in.
6When ready, head down from the summit and along the military track to Little Mis Tor and then continue along the track which eventually brings you back to the car park at the copse.
