Description

Sandstone reminiscent of Northwest Arkansas with several amazing roof features. Over 30 bolted routes ranging from 5.8-5.12, although the meat and potatoes is in the 5.11++. Several nice boulder problems have also been established with the potential for many more.

South facing, although shade can almost always be found at the base of climbs.

Monegaw has a storied history and has been well traveled, as you will note from the myriad amounts of graffiti dating well back into the 1800's.

This place is an absolute trash hole. Literally, there is broken glass( don't wear sandals), beer cans, shotgun shells, even a washing machine in the ditch, oh and tons of graffiti. The guide book (Mo'Beta) says to pack some heat, after visiting I can see why. That being said the routes here are pretty awesome. Be cautious of flaking holds and falling rock (this is Missouri). Great place to spend the afternoon and some awesome roofs to climb. If you had to pick between one area to climb in Missouri I would pick this place. Dec 21, 2017

Many of the anchors are relatively easy to gain by going to the top of the cliff, especially the burns side area. Aug 20, 2017

Is it easy to set top ropes on any of the climbs? Aug 19, 2017

This is a great crag with some fantastic routes. Though it is riddled with frail and brittle rock and lots of sugar choss, the routes are well bolted and the movement is fun and interesting. This area would benefit from some more traffic and will continue to evolve as the loose and weak rock is broken off. May 29, 2017
