Description

Mostly slabby or vertical riverside bluffs. This limestone is poor to good quality, depending on the line. The bluffs face west and don't have much shade in the afternoon. All seasons are good, but fall is best. Very vegetated and tick infested in the summer, and hot in the afternoons, too.

There is quite the mix of sport, trad, and mixed lines here, so bring all your gear. Only a 50 meter rope is required, though.

Refer to Missouri Limestone Select, by Sean Burns.

Getting There

From Kansas City, take 71 south to South 7, going left at the top of the ramp. In Clinton, keep going straight as the road becomes 13. Continue about 25 minutes, passing Osceola Cheese on the left. Take a right on 82, which is at the top of the hill where you will see Sac-Osage Hospital. A mile or two down the road is a scenic pulloff on the right. Park here and descend via a trail by the stone steps.
