great crack climb that protects well, and requires jamming. A rare technique for Missouri. You cannot miss this climb. Climb up past a wide crack at the bottom and get into a good hand size crack. Climb this to a roof, then go left out the roof to great (perfect?) hand jams past the roof. Squeeze by a tree at the very top, and you will come upon a two bolt anchor.

4 out of 5 stars Good route

An uncommonly good crack in MO with solid gear. More sustained and burley than it looks. Like many of the routes here, the anchors aren't looking so hot these days, but plenty of trees above for backup.
