Getting There

3 minute approach from the dirt parking area
38.02546, -93.84212

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.
