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.

7m.

Rockfax Description
The thin crack splitting the centre of the wall gives elegant, fingery climbing and really packs it in. The most popular route here and really rather hard for the grade. © Rockfax

βeta: E2 6a? Nah... Not far off either grade, but gear's all there, as are the holds, so you've just got to keep going!

βeta: One of the most frigged and fallen off routes at Cubar, definitely 6a E2 for anybody but the tall.

βeta: Some of those new tiny Wild Country cams will make this route very easy to protect.
