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.

- Description:© (aca_admin)
PC for 'Project Crag' or 'Planet C**k'. Whatever the name, this crag contains some of the hardest and most popular (difficult) routes at 'Nowra'. Though the crag is dusty and can sometimes be wet, despite appearances, the routes can be excellent and varied.
- Approach:© (aca_admin)
Opposite and slightly downstream of Thompsons Point.
'Access' by parking near the substation, climbing over the fence and down the iron rungs.
- Ethic: inherited from Illawarra
Lots of bolts in this region. Most development has been done after the 1980s.

Not particularly good, but probably the best thing to do here if you don't climb hard.
The anchors are set in seeping rock, and completely rusted after 10 years. New stainless glue-ins anchors (and last bolt) were added in 2004.
Start: Start at the left hand end of the main wall, amongst the big fallen boulders. It starts up the very obvious (and greasy looking) corner.
FA: Paul Westwood, 1991
This is actually the first 4/5's of 'White Ladder', and has been left in the guide only out of senitmentality (and for those that are looking for good 32's to do).
FA: Rob Lebreton, 1994
Short but desperately powerful climbing. 'Excellent'. Originally climbed as 'Attack Mode' to the fixed biner and given grade 32.
Start: Start at the huge handlebar jug right of the massive fallen boulder.
FA: Chris Webb
FA: Rob Lebreton, 1991
Super bouldery roof. The original flake in the roof broke and has now been replaced by a drilled pocket.
FA: Stuart Wyithe, 1992
Church Of Christ
Start with a big throw around the lip heading left past rings. Gather your thoughts, bust through the crux and keep trucking to the end.
FA: Graham Fairbairn, 1991
Turn Your Eyes Insane
Bang out the steep start, break right and and keep pumping.

3 bolt boulder problem.. Soft if you can reach the big pocket.
FA: Paul Westwood, 1996
A pocket boulder gem.. Tricky and funky start getting easier leading up to the sand pit. Get a good rest then knuckle down through and couple big moves and a wicked stretchy pocket boulder top.
FA: Steve Bullen, 1991
FA: Rob Lebreton, 1992
Start: The extension to 'S'.

A bouldery start leads to some excellent moves in steepy, pumpy territory. Save some for the top. If it's all too hard clip the anchors on Bachelor's Ball, but for the full experience tick go all the way.

FA: Paul Westwood, 1996
Excellent steep climbing, and the classic 'Nowra' 25.
Start: Start where the obvious undercut roof touches the ground (at a ring bolt).
FA: Andrew Bull, 1992
Brother In A Body Bag
Continuing the tradition of excellent 28's at 'Nowra'. Backup anchor added in 2004. Start: Start 2m to the right of 'TN'. The undercling at the crux snapped off around 2012-13, but there's still a sequence.
