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.

1. The Wolf's Lair 9 routes in Area

Summary:
JFMAMJJASOND
seasonality
Sport and Trad

Long/Lat: 152.531867, -26.147938

Description:© (hotgemini)

Good short and steep climbing, with mostly better rock quality than many 'Brooyar' crags. It has little future potential and is limited by the combination of a largely blank lower overhanging section leading to an unpleasant meander through the lichen on the upper section.

All bar one of the current routes follow weaknesses through the enjoyable overhung lower section and finish at a lower-off.

Approach:© (hotgemini)

Park at faint fire road that disappears sharply right as you drive up from the campground (marked with cairn).

Follow line of cairns down sandy descent to the right end of the cliff and either traverse across narrow sand covered ledge or head lower and re-ascend to the height of the climbs.

fun powerful moves at start

7 * Carnivore

The hardest route at 'Brooyar' went begging for 11 years! The recipe blends some modern techo bouldering with some old school flavour in the form of tough fingerlocks...mmm, zesty! Rebolted after the first ascent (four rings) to encourage repeats! U-bolt for belayer on ledge to start and rap anchor at top.

2 shots. Second shot I fell off the last hard move, DANG!!! My style and I loved it.

8 * Bio Logic

A moderate grade swim through the lichen.

Start: Rap down to tree belay at base of two arĂȘtes.

FA: Dan Meyers and Neil Monteith, 1997

Excellent easy arete. Recommended!

9 The Big Bad Wolf

The line of ring bolts at the far left end of Wolf's Lair, about 10m L of Bio Logic. Through a small rooflet, then up a blank corner/face, to rest beneath the roof. Swing out the roof on jugs passing two rings and an optional #3.5 SLCD. Pull the lip (no pikers!), and finish hands-free on the ledge. Double ring anchor, but due to drag easier to back climb or top belay and second to clean.
