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.

Starts about 3m climbers left of 'Jolly Roger'. Climb the arrete to a ledge and continue on the right side of the arrete. Follow the bolt line left around the arrete to finish at anchors with rap rings.

The first bolt is around 10m up. The climbing is easy, but it may be worth putting some gear in just in case.
