187 Crag is located just past Hoot Bluff along 187th St. It is on the west facing section of the bluffline and stays well-shaded throughout the summer months. It features a handful of lines in the 5.11-12 range.

Getting There 

There is a trail with cedar steps leading up the hill to the rightmost end of 187 Crag. Please stick to this one trail so we can limit our impact to the hillside.

Start at the bottom left of the boulder on some underclings and move toward the prow for the finish. Sustained moves from bottom to top. Looks very hard from a distance. Look closely and you'll find everything you need is right there. I'm surprised a line/face like this exists in Iowa....[more]   Browse More Classics in Iowa

There are two closed projects on the wall closest to the approach trail. They are the leftmost route & the route second from the right. Please give the developers time to complete their projects. Thank you.
