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.

Start: Start just by big tree.

FA: Graeme Hill

22 Sport 12m
3 * Itsablue

Start 7m right of the Fossil Cave directly behind the 2nd large Blue Gum. Pull up hard and step right with care before good climbing to finishing jugs.

FA: John Hawkins-Salt, 1994

19 Sport 18m, 6
4 12" Release

Was way mossy when first climbed as the winges on the neighbouring climbs didn't like getting covered in brush leavings. Will clean up after fifty or sixty deserving ascents.

Start: As for Itsa.

FA: G Hill

FA: not known; G Hill This is 12" Release

19 Sport 22m

Hard start (stick clip the 2nd bolt if your not solid) that leads into nice wall climbing with a bit of a move at the bulge.

FA: Jason Lammers, 2013

22 Sport 20m
6 Brown Track

Up Sidetrack for 2 bolts then move left past another bolt and then into BB. With a less cranky start, it will probably be more popular than BB.
