Curbar

Eastern Edges

Froggatt's stark sibling, Curbur has an intimidating reputation for steepness - both in rock and grades. However, the severity of the climbs is matched by their magnificence and there are climbs at Diff to E9.

2015 update: quite a number of adders have been seen around Curbar this year, some of which have behaved quite aggressively towards people. 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.

CRoW Information

Even though land above and below the crag has an Open Access designation, strangely the crag itself does not. See map here; http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/ourwork/enjoying/places/openaccess/default.aspx
