This area is host to some high-quality vertical-face sport climbs. Also, about half of the climbs are 11s and 12s. It's more of the standard Missouri limestone: riverside, west facing, pretty solid, lots o' brush, poison ivy, bugs, and/or ticks. Fall is the best season, as the routes can get pretty hot in the summer afternoons, but all seasons can be tolerable.
Please be very considerate to the landowners above the crags, as they are very climber friendly and we want them to remain so. Say hi to them and maybe even bring them a small gift every once in awhile. Mike enjoys beer and may even be interested in getting a belay. Also, do not let their dogs out.
Alt Approach from Mike Meyer -
There’s a cairn on the right side of the road by a utility cable box, follow the trail towards the river from that point. This approach was recommended by one of the home owners(same old dude that’s lived at the end of the gravel for the last 20 years).
This trail brings you out at the bottom between Legacy wall and the natural arch. Nice trail and no scrambling involved, and keeps climbers on the core of engineers property and off private property
