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 imposing fissure is one of gritstone's great crack ticks. A blocky crack leads to a sentry-box. Runners can be placed deep in the crack (tricky in a helmet) but a large cam is easier. Shin up the outside of the crack to a jug on the arete then get established in the upper crack. The wide upper section eases. © Rockfax

FA. Joe Brown 1950. Given VS - must have been more holds on it then..

βeta: The idea that you can place gear deep in the crack is very optimistic.

βeta: Completely desperate! Never been so knackered by a route in my life - my whole body was shaking and I wanted to throw up by the time I dragged myself to the top. I didn't find the 'easy' laybacking on the upper half easy at all. Classic :)
