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.

The obvious pair of spires on the right side, past the cattle gate.
- Access Issues: inherited from El Potrero Chico
Most of the climbing here is in a State Park and there is no fee to enter. Please help maintain a clean environment in order to help maintain these privileges.
Walk past the cattle gate to hobo camp, then follow the blue trail up to the right towards the Outrage wall, and turn left at the red trail.

This is the side that you first see as you walk in to the Potrero.
Crack Test Dummies
Starts downhill and to the left on the taller spire. Look for the chimney system that goes up -- the climb starts in/up this chimney.
There is a short 3rd pitch to the top of the pillar on old iron rings. It is short and easy -- and the old iron is still solid (as of 2012).
Descend by rappelling down "Getting Wood".
Achtung Rheinstein Arete
Alternate (and much harder) 2nd pitch for "Crack Test Dummies".

Through the Looking Glass
Starts on the south face of the uphill spire, then through the "looking glass" (tunnel between the spires), and up the north face of the downhill spire.
Bolt line up the face of the down-hill spire.
Shares anchor with first pitch of "Sunnyside Up"
Sub-anchor for rappel on (long) 2nd pitch.
