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.

6m.

βeta: not E2 and im sure its bigger than 6m. Feels like more when your moving for that top break anyway. Direct looks nails and dirty.

βeta: Warning! The slopey break about 1.5 ft from the top is covered in a rather nasty dusty lichen, not very pleasent - It hurts when you pop off....
