About Bench Tor(OS):

There are a few climbs on this tor high on the south side, from V DIFF upwards. Half a mile before the tor is reached is Eagle Rock on the left bank, about 60 feet tall with about ten climbs from DIFF to HVS, down in the valley, and sheltered. The tor is entertaining and worth a visit, and Eagle Rock is an excellent place to spend the day.
