Description 

This is the area capped by a very apparent roof system. This contains some overhung bolted routes. Some can be accessed from the top by rapping in to the anchors and stringing another rope for TR. It also has the best rock at Cliff Drive.

Most of the routes here are sequential and may feel harder than the grade suggests.

These routes are starting to get fixed chain draws installed. Please do not attempt to take them, as they are intended for the the use of the climbing community. The same goes for the fixed biners at the anchors.

Start right of the crack and head up on face holds to the arete/dihedral. Don't clip the nasty rusty old bolt, and pull the moves to the anchors.A little chossy left around the corner after the 3rd bolt....[more]   Browse More Classics in MO
