What a wonderful sandstone crag, with currently over 30 routes and numerous established boulder problems. Facing west, the steep exposure provides morning shade, during the summer, and afternoon warmth, during the winter. Hermann Missouri isn't going to be just known a winery destination any longer. High ball bouldering, trad and sport lines dot the colorfully orange, overhanging cliff band. Top rope anchors can be reached from the top foe some of the lines, but I suggest leading or bouldering only. The rock can have an aggressive sandstone texture that is tough on all ropes, if you top rope, so try to lead everything and be aware of rope drag.

Getting There

From Hermann, head south on 19, uphill past hwy 100, to a road side park on the right (west side of road). Park on the right and head down hill. Straight ahead is the ramp bouldering area. Facing West, trails to the right lead to the North Wall area. To the left, heads to the South Wall area. Most of the currently established sport lines can be found on the South Wall area. Many of the sport lines were first established as high ball bouldering. Please contact the area's previous climbing developers before unknowingly renaming or bolting new lines.

Josh Q  
Hi all, we visited Hermann this morning. We're very respectable and quite, however the landowner walked down the cliff line with a police officer and asked us to leave, we respectively packed our gear and left. I would say at this point it may not be wise to visit until the park boundaries are determined. Sep 30, 2018 · Temporary Report
We were in the same boat as Josh Q. We visited roadside park on 9-29 and 9-30. On Sunday, a police officer and the owner, Mike Claiborne, were patrolling the cliff and asked us to leave when we were on our way out. Mr. Claiborne had an updated county map showing boundaries in the immediate area. The cliff line marks the boundary between his property and Hermann Roadside Park. We were climbing on the north wall area, which is actually not Mr. Claiborne's property, but is on his neighbor's land. The police officer said the county GIS map is extremely old and outdated, but they hope to get the official record updated soon and private property signs posted in the near future. Mr. Claiborne said he uses the land to hunt on, and when asked, said he would not be interested in a pay-to-climb setup with a drop box or online system for money.

Please know that when you knowingly trespass you hurt all climbers. We should all be respectful of the land boundaries and see if they change in the future. Oct 2, 2018
