Description 

Lowball problems, mostly 10-15 feet tall and sit-starts. Pretty good quality limestone.

It is safe to assume that every problem should be a sit start here.

Getting There 

Kansas City, MO. Along Blue Parkway in Swope Park, between the golf course and 71.

IDK, I'd have to say most routes are more around 8-10 feet *at most.* I haven't seen anything that's in the 15' foot range...
