This is the area capped by a very apparent roof system. This contains some overhung bolted routes. Some can be accessed from the top by rapping in to the anchors and stringing another rope for TR. It also has the best rock at Cliff Drive.

Most of the routes here are sequential and may feel harder than the grade suggests.

These routes are starting to get fixed chain draws installed. Please do not attempt to take them, as they are intended for the the use of the climbing community. The same goes for the fixed biners at the anchors.

As of spring 2014, most everything at Cliff Drive has been re-bolted and there are now very few fixed draws in the area.

Hardest Single Move: The Bolt Route or Bovine Direct, depending on height
Most Sustained Overall: Subtle Caress
Most Sustained Crux Sequence: Malaria
Biggest Moves: Subtle Caress
Slopiest: Malaria

Start right of the crack and head up on face holds to the arete/dihedral. Don't clip the nasty rusty old bolt, and pull the moves to the anchors.A little chossy left around the corner after the 3rd bolt....[more]   Browse More Classics in MO
