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.

The fine right-trending groove is sustained and awkward. Despite the good protection it feels high in the grade. © Rockfax

βeta: Not really bold at all and the start is over-graded at 5a, no more than 4c. However, sustained and quite tough for VS I reckon, much harder than it looks high up. Got pretty pumped.

βeta: i found the first few moves the hardest but thought it pretty strenuous all the way. a good climb that's easier if you just keep moving.
