Pull the low overhang and head over left on the rails to the first bolt. It is definitely recommended to stick-clip the first bolt. Then head up and left, clipping the slung hole. Where the wall becomes steep, the line starts arching back right, forming the vertical smile. This line contains awesome moves on sweet Missouri limestone pockets. Great rock, especially on the headwall part.


Towards the left end of Pontoon Wall. Start under the low roof and right of the first bolt.


Bolts, 2-bolt anchor. Rap or lower.

this route has received some updates, 3/2012- the "slung hole" is now a bolt, and although a stick clip would still be good at the start, there is an alternate high first clip if you choose not to use one. The start is quite bouldery and I'd still advise clipping high(now the second bolt) Mar 19, 2012
