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.

15m.

Rockfax Description
The well-cracked arete is steep for a couple of moves in its central section and protection is good. The wide dirty rift in the left-hand angle of the next bay is Owl's Crack, VS 4c. © Rockfax
