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.

Long/Lat: -100.596328, 25.958703
- Unique Features And Strengths:
High quality desert limestone, a lot of friction and smooth with your skin.
This is about 30 minutes northwest from "El Potrero Chico", on a different formation. Also lots of room for development.
Walk uphill from the parking area on the obvious trail that zig-zags up straight to the wall
Long/Lat: -100.596276, 25.958971
This is the main crag in this area. From the parking area follow the zig zagging trail up to the very obvious cave feature.

To reach the last five routes on this wall take a right once you hit the wall coming from the parking area. This route is the first line of bolts on the left. Climb straight up on small edges and side pulls to the chain anchor.

Cat Scratch Fever
3 meters right of 'Cat Gut'. Follow obvious black water streak to cold shut anchor. The climb starts with a slab and quickly turns into a vertical face climb. Clipping the 3rd bolt is a little sketchy because the fall is directly over the slab start. There is an intermediate anchor for rapping down.
Esta ruta es de 40 metros, escalen con cuerda de 70 mts y pongan nudos en las puntas!
This is the farthest right bolt line. Climbs the clean face for five pitches to the ridge on top of 'Culo de Gato'. This is the only route here that summits the ridge.
This is the only route on the slabs that are just west of the the orange cave where Redemption is located.
Long/Lat: -100.587814, 25.952013
Technically this crag is not part of Culo de Gato, but is another buttress in the same formation.
Crescent Moon Buttress
The first two pitches can be linked. After that I wouldn't recommend due to rope drag over loose rock and vegetation. The fourth pitch is the 10a. On the sixth pitch you rappel down to a notch and climb the last two. On the descent you rappel down to the notch again and use the anchors right on your face (or chest if you are tall) to rappel (walk) down to another anchor which takes you straight down to the ground with a single 70m rope (this new anchor was added recently).
