A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.
At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

Table of contents
- Unique Features And Strengths:
A beautiful hut and campground in a climbing mecca with a lake for washing off.
Frey is inaccessible by road - it's around a 4 to 5 hour trek; so you'll be staying the night or week. There is a Refugio with (at time of our visit) a lovely couple who make fresh dinner every night and have stocks of beer and other treats. There are several tatty guidebooks and generally a lot of other climbers passing through - some information is easy to use, it depends on how wild you are willing to be.
- Access Issues:
A 5 hour trek after a bus ride from Bariloche - not a day crag.
Bus to the start of the walking track, then hike uphill for 5 hours, following signs to Refuggio Frey
- Where To Stay:
Stay at the Refugio (around $15) or camp on hard rock with 50km hour winds...
Mixed / alpine
Great multipitch 5 minutes from the hut. All belays well bolted and double as abseil decent. The first pitch is the hardest, with some really cool crack climbing, then it's quite moderate to the top.
Open book corner about 10m left of Diedro de Jim with a single bolt down low.
Diedro de Jim / Jims Dihedral
One of the most popular routes at Frey. Starts on the right side of the Agua Frey near the back of the pinnacle. 1. 35m (5b) Major corner to bolted anchor on small ledge 2. 15m (5c) Splitter diagonal handcrack to anchor on summit.
