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
Stride across the smelly toilet-pit then follow the curving flake out right to a poor rest and tricky moves to grasp the bounteous flutings and an easy finish. Try to ensure the ropes don't jam. © Rockfax

βeta: I lent out right and placed a blind nut in the end of the right crack before moving round the corner. The nut was crap, but stopped the rope for getting jammed!

βeta: A good route, not nearly as evil as it looks, more committing than actually hard. Good climbing but definitely doesn't have the grandeur to deserve 3 stars, 2 is fair.

βeta: It look a bit intimidating at first, but it is not too bad. Only hard bit is get yourself balanced when getting round onto the big flute. Lovely route and worthy of 3 stars.
