Granite Climbs of Missouri is the most extensive rock climbing guidebook to Missouri's granite heartland-the St. Francois Mountains. Only an hour and a half south of St. Louis, the Silver Mines, Millstream Gardens, and Amidon offer some of the best boulder problems, highballs, and short traditional routes in Missouri. The book contains over 420 documented routes, and over 275 of these are easy to moderate in difficulty. Color photos and maps help climbers locate routes with ease and speed. A glossary of climbing terms will help new climbers, and an appendix gives the stories behind some of the route names.
