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 wide crack is a good warm-up for the Eliminates if you squirm it, and it might just make you change your plan for the day. The bold (reckless?) can layback it instead. A short continuation pitch (VS 5a ) is available up and left. © Rockfax
