The northern-most buttress on Curbar has an attractive hanging slab set above steeper rock. To the right, in a pit, are a couple of worthwhile crack climbs. The area can be green after rain and in the colder months. Guidebook page 286.

12m. The centre of the slab is precarious and unprotected. The landing is especially unforgiving - check that name again!
