This is the first bolted line to the right of ProvidenceCrack. Sustained climbing with the crux coming at the end. If you are at this cliff and think you might be able to get up a 5.12, you should get on this climb. Might be the best climb at the cliff.

A great and sustained route with powerful moves down low followed by thin moves to finish. One of the most sustained routes of its grade in mid-missouri, and the finish is very hard in the summer heat. The bottom might be somewhat reach dependent.

Cool route. It's hard to find a sustained route in Missouri, and even this route has a really good rest right before the last crux, but for what it's worth, this route is not a one move wonder. There are a few very cool sequences and the crux isn't doing the moves necessarily, but linking them all on your redpoint attempt.
