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 tall (about 250m) buttress south-facing buttress. It has a low right-curving arch in the center, then a 2nd higher one about half-way up near the right side.
The classic, Birdland, goes up this wall.
A decent alternate if Birdland is crowded.
Start about 30m left of Birdland, in a steep gully. Go up the gully for about 320ft (2 pitches), to a comfortable ledge about 15 feet right of the gully. From there head up and slightly right on the face past a couple bolts to an anchor. Then step right and go up blocky cracks to a rap anchor.
The Big Horn
Climb the first two pitches of Birdland, then head up and left to the big chimney (50ft), then up a big crack on the left face of the chimney to an anchor (120ft). Rap from here (usual), or continue up another couple pitches to the top of the formation.
Or climb the first two pitches of Rawlpindi, then instead of branching right onto the face, continue up the chimney to the left.
After climbing the first pitch of Birdland, walk about 15 feet left on the ledge. This climb goes directly up the varnished face. It finishes at the same ledge as the 2nd pitch of Birdland, so can be used as an alternate 2nd pitch for someone looking for a bit more spice.
Starts in the grotto behind the big boulder just to the right of Birdland.
A superb sustained route at the grade (5.7+). Very popular, due to bolted anchors, ability to be rappelled on single 70m rope, and very good climbing with generally solid protection.
Start below the left-most of 2 obvious long cracks the split the lower part of the varnished buttress left of the corner that Spectrum climbs to the roof 60ft up. This is a few yards above a huge boulder that leans against the cliff creating a tunnel.

Climbs the large corner/gully that defines the right side of the Spectrum Buttress. The start of the gully has its own pyramid buttress, start up the left side of this.
Rappel with a 60m rope.
This is recognizable by a large triangular area of dark varnish on the south-east flank of Bridge Mountain. It is generally sunny and warm, making it a popular winter weather location.
The left-most set of routes on Brass Wall are in a section of left-facing corners.
|5||Sea of Holes||5.10 R||3440ft|

To the right of Sky Dive, the wall curves around to be a bit more east-facing, and changes from the left-facing character of the left side to a more flat wall aspect.
|11||Zen and the Art of Web Spinning||5.4||40ft|
|13||Heavy Spider Karma||5.6||60ft|
