About Dewerstone(OS):

This is probably the best cliff on Dartmoor, maybe even in Devon. Almost 200 feet tall and almost vertical, it has superb climbs especially in the lower grades, yet not without difficulty. The climbing is good on sound, well protected rock. The routes are on a series of buttresses ovewrlooking the River Plym, with over 100 routes. At around 400 feet above sea level, it is a sheltered and sensible area if the weather is questionable. Watch for midges in the spring and summer though.
