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.

- Unique Features And Strengths:
Close to the strand good for a swim after
Once a major part of Townsvilles defence during WWII. Kissing Point offers climbing close to the city center with plenty of climbing options. most notably "Swinging in a Sunday Sea Breeze"
- Access Issues:
In recent times there has been issues with strand security guards telling people they can not climb here because it is army land... THIS IS NOT TRUE.
Enter the area next to the Rockpool on the Strand
- Where To Stay:
DO NOT cross the fence into the army property
First Developed in the 90's some climbs are bolted, but I would check how safe they are before using them. I have personally seen a bolt fall out while the climb was being top roped!

|1||Kiss and Make Up||11||8m|
|2||Pouge Mah Thon (Kiss My Ass)||8||10m|
Contrived, but still good. Smooth face 3.5m L of arête to horizontal crack at 2/3 height. Your last gear goes in here. Now straight up the middle of the face to the top. Don't stray. Belay off chains. Good rock throughout. Repeat ascentionists have placed gear in KC to protect the top, but you won't. Lee Skidmore 30/7/96
The set of twin cracks 2.5m L of arête to small corner in upper section. Great rock. Chains at top. Andrew Rule, Dave Ahmelman, Mark Gommers 4/96
Hugs and Kisses
Popular for beginners. Very easy, and a good first lead on natural protection. It is the widest crackline which is located 1.5m L of the arête. Chains at top. Mark Gommers, Dave Ahmelman, Andrew Rule 4/96
Quite good, especially the start. Corner crack 0.5m L of the arête to face crack. Chains at top. Zachary von Kemp, Mark Gommers 4/96
Swinging in a Sunday Sea Breeze
hanger is missing from the 4th bolt
Awesome! Hardest on the cliff, and also the best. One of the only climbs here that isn't a poxy slab! The line of five FH's starting 0.5m R of the arête. A left arm killer! Scott says "If you use the sloping wall on the R you are not climbing the proper route". Chains at top. Scott Bewley 4/97

Start 1m R of Stone Goddess and up over the roof. Pull up (crux) and climb straight up the face (two horizontal cracks for cams) till the fig tree. Traverse R to the wide crack (multiple wires) and up to top through horrible choss (very loose).
