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.


Rockfax Description
Climb Moon Crack to above its crux then gain the slab above by a wild mantelshelf. Hard smearing and a rounded finish might just gain the top of this particularly taxing trip. © Rockfax
