FA: unknown
Missouri > CM: Wilton > Meadows Area
Access Issue: Respect Private Property Details

Description

(P1) Take the crack line up the right side of the large dihedral on the northern end of the Meadows area. Finish on a large ledge with two bolts. (P2) Roped or unroped, walk across the grassy ledge (maybe there are bolts here I don't remember) and stop at a cedar tree that are the anchors to 5.9 Crack and Rainy Day People. (P3) Ascend the wide crack/chimney through some poor quality rock to the very top of the bluff. Anchor off a tree to rap down to the cedar tree or pull off a miraculous walk-off somewhere.

Alt (P1) - Climb 5.9 Crack or Rainy Day People into the start of (P3).

Protection

All natural gear with anchor building materials. Bring extra bail slings for the top or just wrap the rope around a tree.

[Hide Comment] Was originally referred to as “the Two Pitch Climb” until Dave Craigmile called it “ The Meadow” after the grassy ledge that connected the two pitches. Nov 7, 2020

[Hide Comment] Instead of the ledge walk on "pitch" two, in the late 70's (1978?) an alternate second pitch was added below the ledge. Just before the 5.6 crack to gain the ledge, move left and up passing three bolts on the face to gain the ledge below the final (third pitch). I think MIke Downing & co. put these bolts in?
