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.

8m.

βeta: I agree, more like 5a than 4b. Whoever described the top as a "perfect jamming crack" must have very thin hands! I used poor jams and slopers.

βeta: the top crack has one perfect jam as you leave the ledge, after that definitely 5a.
