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.

2 ** A Family Affair.

Start dirctly under the large crack and flake.

Pull up on to the first ledge and then follow the crack upwards. Harder finishing moves.

The hanging flake is hollow so belayers stand a little to the side.

Also done on trad gear for those so inclined.
