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 most popular route on the crag with some fine positions. The cracks right of the corner lead awkwardly and steeply to a ledge. Trend right up the wall to a spike and a superb exposed finish on sloping holds. A tiny left-hand finish is also possible. © Rockfax

βeta: I'd say the initial cracks are just about 4b, but it seems to be well protected and an absolutely cracking route

βeta: Thought the initial steepish crack moves were worth 4b; the rest is nicely exposed but easy.
