The area is an old mine that is now flooded with water. The rock is limestone and offers mainly high boulder problems and traverses over the water. NO ROPES needed just drop off into the cool deep water. This is a great place to climb during hot summer days. The tallest climbs are about 45'.

Visit the website for more info

The climbs are mostly V3 and up (5.10+ and harder). Much fun if you are at least a 5.11 climber. Not a lot of beginner stuff, but still worth the trip.

Featured Route For EM: The Off-Sets

East Face Variation 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  Missouri : EM: The Off-Sets : East Face
Where you see the obvious place to top out you can keep traversing off to the left. There is about 20 - 25 feet of traversing (with crux about 1/3 of the way in) before you come to the other arete which immediately followed by a dihedral. Did feel safe going further than that....[more]   Browse More Classics in Missouri
