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.

Brilliant face climbing. A double set of small/medium wires very useful. About 10m right of CD is a recessed column. Scramble up to the base with care. Up, till you can step right onto the column proper. Follow shallow r facing corner till the gear fizzles out, then reach righ to gain hidden flake. Follow this up to gain top of column. There is a DBB a few metres up and left.

Crazed and Confused
FA: N. Deka,D. Stephenson, Feb 1989, 1989
Black Magic Area
Starts at the highest point of the gully, climbing to the base of the climb is a bit precarious. Face climbing to the roof, then great technical climbing up the arete using oddly angled flakes.

The second pitch is a Pipes classic. Steep, featured, and pumpy.
There is a lower-off at the top of the 2nd pitch. With a 60m rope and care, the belayer can lower the climber to the ground, then abseil to the groud using the climber as a counterweight.
Clamber up the rocks to a lightly overhanging finger crack. Follow this up and over several spears of rock, When you reach the second (larger) platform, head to the crack on the left. Be sure to check around the corner to the right so you don't miss the rap bolts. If you reach a platform behind the large boulder you've already passed them.

|16||Eye for a Line||16||34m|
Cracked face just to the right of the prow, 2m left of the tree. Great if you are a percussionist. For the rest of us, however, the tone emitted by tapping the flakes on this route is a tad scary (but the gear is good). Finishes with double bolt belay at the Black Magic step.
