Jamie on Cox Tor
So to the moors for a Thursday evening fell run with Jamie Hayward.  We parked up at Pork Hill car park and got changed in the cold and wind.  First on the list for today was Cox Tor (80), we got to the top before the mist had covered it and took in the view.  Next we crossed over the “col” to Roos Tor (75) as the mist filled in behind us.  No views on Roos so we quickly, left for the Staples, Great (74), Middle (89) and Little(125), the mist was swirling around us and visibility was up and down.  Next we crossed the road and made are way towards Vixen Tor (127).  Next up was Heckwood Tor (161), this was the 150th tor and hilltops visited during this project, we would have celebrated but we had already done this on Little Staple oops!!  Next off to Pew Tor (168) a great little tor with loads to explore on a nice day, but with the wind blowing it was quickly time to leave.  Off to the last of the day Feather Tor (164) a nice little tor set into the hill.  Then all that was left to do was head for the car as the mist closed in for one last time.  A really enjoyable 8km run over some great terrain in typical Dartmoor conditions.    
Greetings from Roos Tor!
