About Wildcat Park:

TR, bouldering Difficulty of Routes: 5.7 to 5.10+ / V0- V10 Types of Rock: Quartzite and dense chert Nearby Businesses: Joplin has what ever you need. Used by rapellers, too. Offers lots of top ropes, but bring lots of webbing to reach distant anchors. ---------The climbing @ wildcat park is accross the river from the park. You can drive across the low water bridge and park on the left in a pullout on top of the hill. Hike down a short trail which leads the descent, "mother natures crack", a wide chimney. The climbing is only about 20-30 feet tall and is very sharp. Top ropes are the way to go here as the rock quality is poor. Good luck!---------quoted from user "therealbovine" -----Climbing can also be found by turning right at the Wildcat Park sign. Follow the road until a Y and take a right. There is circle parking, with a picnic area as well. There is all kinds of rock found around this area. Ranges from 15-35 ft. Boulders are found to the left of the picnic area. Great place to climb! ------Due to me being a new climber, the ratings posted on this site are off. Alot of the harder problems are probably 5 or 6's. If you climb them, let me know what you think they are. Thanks!
