Fall Climbing Festivals
Camping in the Garden 2011
Bouldering at The Bouldering Garden offers many sudents to opportunity to meet up with other weekend travelers that are looking to climb and camp around the central Midwest. Some of the most popular crags include  HCR, in northern Arkansas, J-Falls, in Southern Il, and many climbing areas right here in central Missouri.
While Elephant Rocks is a bouldering destination, the highest concentration of sport routes, in Missouri, can be found along the Missouri River, near Columbia, and along the Osage River drainage system.
Climbing around central Missouri still seems to be a well kept secret, despite the guides books published between 1979 and 1999.
