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
The thin hand-crack, maybe with a quick layback too, gains the floral finishing groove that contains the odd loose hold. Short-lived but another pumpy number. © Rockfax

βeta: Don't hold me to it, but I thought all the rock was good now that some at the top has been pushed off.

βeta: If you're whacking around the base of this be careful to check for ticks. We got at least 6 between us somewhere around here.

βeta: Cleaned up Sept 2021. All vegetation removed, some soil remains but should be much improved. In the process some loose rock including one rather large and dangerous block was removed, use own judgement as some may still remain.
