Lee Creek Bouldering Area
About Lee Creek Bouldering Area:
|Nice bouldering area on typical Ozark sandstone. Only about 8-10 routes up now ranging from VB-V4, but plenty of potential around. There are boulders close to road on left and by the creek on the right. There is also a fairly long bluffline up the hill on left. The bluffline is mostly trash, but some bouldering may be found. Large roofs, could make for very hard lines on the bluff. Access is very sensitive, so behave like kings and queens. Leave no trash/trace you were there. If you do all of the above, you may still get hasseled by the locals, so beware.|
