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.

Lat / Long: -30.849516, 151.153296
Boulders that line both sides of the MacDonald river.
Public access to the high flood mark, access is from the watsons creek road.
Approximately 2 kilometers from Bendemeer half way to the deep hole where the river gets close to the road.
Please close all gates that you enter into and out of TSR, please don't spook stock and Above all PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ANY RUBBISH! This is the easiest way to get locals off side!
Lat / Long: -30.849551, 151.152957
The central, and most concentrated cluster of boulders in Summer school area.
Public access, a little overgrown in some areas, with blackberry lurking.. Remember only to stay to the high flood mark on the east side.. It is private land and owner prefers people not to access his place.
Park just off the road on near where you can see the top of the cluster.
Lat / Long: -30.849766, 151.152807
Long and low boulder close to the swimming area.
easy access along the river either way from north or south is right next to the track on the western side of the river.
The first river project in 2014 by Anthony Townsend and Deon Heemskerk
Traverse L to R
Fun and easy little traverse. use the corner and launch up to the top and move across. plenty of holds.
Traverse R to L
Same but reverse
L to R and R to L
Left to right and right back to left. There is a few spots to have a break pop up on the end on the right. mid point there is a decent little edge.
Lat / Long: -30.849717, 151.152784
Boulder with plenty of sharp little crimps, sprinkled over its face. Has great landings, and has much less blackberry under it than other boulders in this area. Needs a lot of cleaning.
About 1m along from the left end you will see a vertical feature. Follow that up to the crimps up top. feet are the crystals.. Top out is a bit awkward due to the boulder on top. To get off down climb and jump on mat or move around to the right where some smaller boulders are to leap off.

Boulders on the east side of the river.
The boulders under the high flood mark are all public access, however i have included some above the high water mark that are gems. I tried to seek permission but due to the owners fear of legal replications, permission will not be given. However that been said there is no fence on that side of the river, no clear line of trespass and as long as the river is in eye shot (not 1km off the river) it was hinted that we would only be asked to return to the river if caught there. But please don't push it! This has taken me a long time to get this small step. Keep the river in eye shot! Its a grey area..
The easiest way to cross the river in normal flow is up river in the exile area, near the high power lines its shallow.
Lat / Long: -30.849642, 151.153389
Easy slab boulder on the side of the river.
Directly up from the swimming hole at summer school on the east side.
One of the first boulders climbed on the MacDonald river around 2013 or earlier by the then Bendemeer boulder patrol members Anthony Townsend and Deon Heemskerk. Many flakes have fallen off during this time, sometimes resulting in spectacular falls.
Crimpy slab, grade may vary depending on how the flakes have broken. Have fun!
Walk Like An Eygiptian
SDS, side pull and look for the jug on the left. a little awkward but oh so much fun.
Over hung boulder along the river
From the swimming hole head up stream for thirty meters, it is distinctive.
Boulder with multiple cracks, mostly slab. Make sure you give it a clean the sheoak (casurina) needles make it slippery.
River side, up stream 15m from Rats for supper.
Lat / Long: -30.850077, 151.153411
Nice size boulder facing the river, with wall like face.
Not far from rivers edge, you can easily see it from the muffin.
