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 long, shallow, leaning groove is arduous and superb as well as being one of the best lines on grit. Small wires protect, place a solid runner early on to stop them unzipping. © Rockfax

FA. Johnny Dawes 1986. Originally given E7 7a because the grooves looked like 2 sevens..
