Structured tagging

Crag Tags make it easy to add structured information to routes and areas in the index. Crag Tags are cool because they display information in a concise way and can also be used for searching.

You can also use an unstructed hash tagging for stuff that fits outside the structured tags.

Quick tip: to get started from any area or route, click on Action > Assign tags

The table below shows both current and proposed tags. If you have any comments or suggestions for new tags then please either contact us or participate in the following public forum:

A couple of things to note re. Crag Tags:

  • Tags are grouped into sets. One or more tags from within each set can be selected, as appropriate to the route or area.
  • Tag groups marked as ‘Inherits’ will automatically cascade down through the index to all lower areas and routes where no tag has been selected. This means that in a predominantly slabby crag you don’t have to tag each route individually. Instead you can set the style as Slab at the crag level and then just tidy up any exceptions at the individual route level (eg if there are a few Crack or Chimney routes).
