Crag Tags make it easy to add structured information to routes and areas in the index. Crag Tags are cool because they display information in a concise way and can also be used for searching.
You can also use an unstructed hash tagging for stuff that fits outside the structured tags.

A couple of things to note re. Crag Tags:
- Tags are grouped into sets. One or more tags from within each set can be selected, as appropriate to the route or area.
- Tag sets with a ‘Yes’ in the ‘Inherits’ column will automatically percolate down through the index to all lower areas and routes where no tag has been selected. This means that in a predominantly slabby crag you don’t have to tag each route individually. Instead you can set the style as at the crag level and then just tidy up any exceptions at the individual route level (eg if there are a few or routes).
