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.

Moon Walk's tough twin. The thin bulging crack gives a fierce battle but with solid wires to protect. At the top of the crack, move right to the much easier slabby groove. © Rockfax
