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.

Steep but with less than perfect rock in a couple of spots. Still very worthwhile

6 * Cannon Ball 5.11b Sport 80ft, 8
7 ** Animal Husbandry 5.11b Sport 90ft, 9
8 ** Monkey in the Middle

The best route on this section of wall. A short section of steeper wall to start then the angle eases off but the climbing is still mostly sustained at the grade

10 * One Brick Shy 5.10c Sport 8
11 * Skin the Cat

The right or the two routes that start off the boulder with the undercut roof. It angles rightwards nearly the entire way and finishes up a crack toward the top. Not quite as good as Monkey in the Middle but still worth doing.

FA: 1999

15 ** Armadillo 5.11 Sport 70ft
16 * Put Me in the Zoo 5.9 Sport 70ft
17 Hippopotomoose

Right of Sparkling Jackass is this excellent line which begins left of a low crack. Move up on pockets to reach an undercling crux then continue up the enjoyable pumpy face.

FA: Kipp Trummel, 2013

5.11c Sport 80ft, 8
18 Barrel Full of Monkeys 5.11a Sport
19 BabaBooey

This and the next line begin with several tough moves on small pockets and edges. Make it through the beginning and be rewarded with a nice long run on good holds.
