C: Big River Buttress

Missouri > EM: Robinson Bluff > 2: North, Climber's R…


Just north of the Goblin Grotto, the cliff line turns, forming a large ledge, dividing the Grotto from the Big River Spire. Big River Two Step is easily identified by the left facing, lower layback crack, in the lower dihedral of darker rock. The climb is quite tall and requires a 60 meter rope, or longer.

* Note  - Route and trail improvements are currently underway so stay aware to climbers cleaning along the trail and rock routes. Please be considerate to the developers  / bolters.

RATINGS: While easier climbs are given a rating number representing the climb to be no harder than the rating represented, routes rated 5.10 and up are given a specific max crux rating. This should help you plan your visit and navigate your way along the bluff while using Mountain Project.  Please provide feedback using your MP App. Star rating and rate difficulty feedback helps the next visitors use the app.

Getting There

From the bottom of the steps, hike north past the Grotto Wall, on the express trail or the cliff line trail. Looking up and you will see the tall climb following the left facing dihedral.
