Adders are frequently seen around Curbar. They are often very well camoflaged so it's worth keeping an eye out when moving into new areas, picking up kit etc as a bite, although not life threatening to most healthy adults can still be nasty.

Ticks are abundant due to a large population of red deer. take care, particularly if passing through bracken below the crag.

12m.

Rockfax Description
The groove just right with a jutting tombstone is a bit of a contrast to most things hereabouts, though it still requires advanced gritstone 'udging' techniques by most. Keep to the right of the initial rib. © Rockfax

βeta: Agreed. I have bad technique and found it hard work. My second has good technique and found it easy. Probably HVD done properly.

βeta: is this description wrong?! there is an E1 5c that goes up somewhere here apparently, and the start of the route we did was way harder then HVD.
