Description

We're open seven days a week to the public and offer 21 campsites for those who aren't ready to leave!

We just ask when you come to visit us, that you make sure you have SIGNED OUR LIABILITY WAIVER and have paid the required ENTRY FEE or CAMPING FEE(S) due at the time of entry.

Camping Note: Bring a backpack or a duffel bag to haul your gear. The campsites are about a 500 yard walk from the parking area.

You can find all information on our Fees and Waiver Page page in the menu bar at the top of the website. Rules and requirements are posted on our kiosk as you enter Robinson Bluff. So make sure to read them before, or after you have submitted your waiver and fee envelope (also located at our kiosk).

Climb more. Drive less.

Developed for climbers of all grades and styles, Robinson Bluff is a Midwestern sport climber’s haven. Here, moderate face climbing prevails with some spicy overhangs and obvious cracks. Within a few yards of the Big River and scenic views of rural rolling hills, Robinson Bluff is a new sport climbing destination in Missouri.
Robinson Bluff gives Midwest sport climbers a new place to climb outdoors. It's close. It's beautiful. And the routes are tall, have great movement and are set for all levels.

Here's a couple housekeeping issues:

1. Fees and Waiver Page
2. At this time, no pets or hammocks allowed.
3. No topping out on routes.
4. No top roping directly off the anchors.
5. Leave no trace - if you pack it in, pack it back out.
6. We periodically add extra bolts to a route to increase safety. Take extra draws with you on ALL routes.

Getting There

Note: You must go through Tiff MO. If you just put the GPS coordinates into your GPS you may end up across the river from the bluff and have to double back 30 minutes to get to the correct parking area.

From DeSoto MO:

Take HWY 21 south for 13 miles.
You will pass Washington State Park on your right and E&T’s service station on your left. Turn left onto Hwy CC, then after a 2.9 miles turn right onto Hwy E. After 1.9 miles turn left onto Tiff road, which is easy to miss coming around a long curve. Follow Tiff Rd around 90 degree twisty turns, past a small post office, under the rail road tracks, over the low water crossing, then up a long hill. After 3.6 miles on Tiff Rd, turn left onto Politte Road. The gravel road turns into black top then you turn left onto Bo Hollow Road. Locals know the area as Bo Hollow. This long gravel driveway will should be driven slowly to allow other cars to pass safely. After a mile or so, turn right into the obvious parking lot. Parking and camping fees are paid at the kiosk. 





3000 feet after E&T’s make a left on to HWY CC and continue for 2.9 miles.



Make a right onto HWY E and continue 1.9 miles



Make a left onto Tiff Rd. and continue for 3.6 miles.



At fork just past the post office stay to the left and shortly you will go under a railroad bridge.





Make a left onto Politte Rd. and continue for 0.5 miles.



Turn left onto BO Hollow Rd. and continue about 1.1 miles to Robinson Bluff parking on the right.

Great place to climb. Bring a helmet as there are some loose sections on less climbed routes. If you get a day pass online print out your pass and put on the dash. Bring plenty or water down or a good filter to gets some river water filtered. Boulder style starts make for very interesting climbs, cant wait t o spend more time there. Jul 23, 2018

I think it's your phone or maybe you haven't added MO to the app. Once you download the app you have to go in and add the states that you want. It's working just fine on my phone and tablet, all the routes are there. Oct 21, 2018
