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.

9m.

βeta: Yeah, this should start up the big offwidth and then finish up the wide crack directly above it according to the BMC guide. If you climb the wall as described here and then the right hand hanging crack on the wall it is Arctic Nose, Severe.
