The outcrops of Haytor stand at 1,499 ft (457m) and consists of two granite outcrops and is classified as an 'avenue tor' which means that the central section of the tor has been eroded leaving an avenue running between two outcrops. The granite which makes up the tors is called 'tor granite' but at the base of the western outcrop is a layer of fine grained granite. Where the tor granite joins and overhangs the fine granite a 'rock shelter' has formed. On the top of the eastern outcrop the granite has been eroded to form a rock basin which measures roughly 34" long, 28" wide and 10" deep.
