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.

Countdown to Ecstasy
Good climbing up the rounded R arete of Silver Knight Buttress. Some reckon it's a soft tick. Up the sickle-shaped crack to the arete, then blast up on tiny nubbins past a couple of thin diagonal dykes and a horizontal break to good jugs. Two BRs and a FH along the way.
2 FHs. Left of The Chuchu. From the second bolt, step right and up.

Asylum for the Insane
Crimpy edges to start past 3 bolts, followed by easy ground through a jam crack.
Can't Buy a Thrill
Quite a nice climb now with the addition of a fixed hanger down lower. Up the face on small edges in the pale water streak, past a fixed hanger and carrot. Finish up the jam crack. Double ring bolt belay at top.
