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.

1. Cala Barques 48 routes in Crag

All Deep Water

Deep water soloing area

Discovered a year or so after the development of Cova del Diablo, Cala Barques offers a slightly less intimidating alternative to Diablo's taller cliffs. The rock is generally very solid and gives a variety of features, including stalactites, arches and some rather shapely caves. Most routes here were put up by Klem Loskot, along with the Salomon team, local enthusiast Miquel Riera and U.S. convert Chris Sharma. There are four main areas at Barques. The first is known simply as 'Cova' - a stunning stalactite cave around fourteen metres high. Further along the cliff are two more caves known as the Metrosexual Area and the Snatch Area. Both of these crags are connected by a giant grotto which can be accessed from the top of the cliff. The final feature here is a little further around the headland and is known as the Tarantino Cave - this is the tallest cliff in the vicinity, and houses some of the hardest routes on the island.
