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:
Varied sport and trad climbing around the gorge of the Esera river
After the Ésera river leaves the Barasona reservoir, it winds its way through a narrow gorge, where it has excavated multiple massive walls as well as several fin-shaped rock blades. The rock, limestone and conglomerates, varies in quality. You will find short sport climbs, aid, trad routes and even a via ferrata. The quality of the bolts ranges from prehistoric bolted-on chain links to modern bolts. Choose wisely.

- Where To Stay:
Some houses in Olvena can be rented. There is a (seasonally open) camping ground in the centre of the gorge.

Short overhangs just below the road to Olvena
Driving to Olvena, breifly after the village gets in sight, the right side of the road is protected with some "merlons" (square blocks). The climbs lie in the centre of that stretch just below the road.
Long/Lat: 0.295190, 42.116992
Roadside cliff with shorter sport routes and minimum approach. Flat and pleasant base, but in some parts dropping steeply to the river below, so only partially suitable for small kids. Some of the "routes" sem to be equipped only with top anchors.
Passing through the Ésera gorge on N-123, take the turnoff to Puebla de Castro over the bridge. Right after the bridge, the sector can be seen at the right hand side.
