Yes Tor is the second highest point on Dartmoor, Devon, South West England, at 619 metres (2,031 ft) above sea level. Together with nearby High Willhays they are the only two peaks above 2,000 feet (610 m) south of the English Peak District National Park.
Yes Tor is two metres lower than the nearby High Willhays.
A notable mine is located in the area.
In his memoir Father and Son (1907), Edmund Gosse views Yes Tor, near which he lived when a boy, as an unthreatening and unprepossessing hill: "Alas! We might as well have attempted to rouse the summit of Yes Tor into volcanic action."
In popular culture
Kim Stanley Robinson makes an oblique reference to Yes Tor in "2312", commingled with a variety of then-historical musical contextual clues.
