There are four tors called Sharp Tor, this is the one between Dartmeet and Poundsgate.

Atop the granite peak of the tor is a couple (at the right) and a single walker. Another walker can be spotted walking up the hill just above the gorse.

The Dartmoor tors and clitter slopes have been formed through the weathering of the granite over at least the last ten million years.
