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.

15 ft left of the arete with "Store" on it. looks like the crux is low, and the moves up the face are on the longer side, but to solid holds.
bullet hole pockets and a crimp or two give way to better holds above and jugfest pumpfest after sidestepping a small roof. A few nimble slab moves here and there keep this arete lively but reasonable. also: stays dry in the rain.
