Dartmoor Tor or Rock

William Crossing dismissively refers to Arch as both "merely a small lump of rock" and a "small mass". Terry Bound is pretty scathing, saying;"..hardly worth the name 'tor'".

I disagree. it's views are pleasant and the granite is interesting enough, with a couple of rock basins and perched atop the largest outcrop is a logan stone with the initials "P.C" carved on its west face . Who these initials refer to is unclear.
