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.

9m.

Rockfax Description
The pocketed centre of the slab is tenuous and unprotected. The right-hand start, using the big pocket, is easier but true technicians will ignore this and climb direct. f6B+ above pads. © Rockfax
