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.

βeta: From a quick solo trying to grade it for a friend, I'd say more like HS 4c, but you've got to try to stick mostly to the right-hand crack with good jams!
