The northern-most buttress on Curbar has a couple of attractive buttresses. The area can be green after rain.

Marx's Wall
On a shady side-wall, facing Froggatt. Make a sit start left of the Angular Crack - which is out of bounds. f6B+ from standing.

Angular Crack
The wide crack and corner is dirty, damp and awkward.

Beech Buttress
Balance boldy out to the arete and climb up its well-positioned valley face to a final tricky couple of moves.

Beech Buttress Direct
A long reach and stiff pull gains the easier arete.

Don't Slip Now
The centre of the slab is precarious, hard and unprotected. The landing is especially unforgiving - well named!

The escapable left arete of the gully, usually with a side-runner.

Balance up the ramp to gain the centre of the wall and finish direct. Nearly a hidden gem.

Climb the wide corner-crack (big gear) to its top, then step right and balance up the pleasant ramp.

Campion Wall
The fine finger-crack leads to ledges then step out right and climb the slab. The wall to the right provides a f5+ start.
