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.


Rockfax Description
Well-named. From the bank, cross the wall leftwards to a hard finish above a worrying drop. Might be only E5 for the very tall, and impossible for the very short without a run/bunk-up. A rope belayed from the right is sensible. © Rockfax
