Location: OK : Wichita Wildlife Refuge : Charon's Gardens : Pear and Apple (Bouldering) : The Smoking Section

Comments: Ack! Took me forever to find this. Here's some directions:

After you make the cross over the tallus, the trail dips down quite a bit, then raises back up. Exit the trail East (left) just before the trail starts to raise back up. If you get to the turnoff for Pride, you've gone too far.

As you enter the cave, Thank You For Smoking is on your left (faces South) -- Eating Stars is to your right (faces North)

Comments: I visited the park on June 20, 2010 and can confirm much of Steve's findings.

  • Very hot/humid -- bring lots of water.
  • Only picked one tick off my wife. I had bug spray on and had no issues with any insects.
  • On the bouldering side of things (pear and apple), most of the good boulders were infested with daddy-long-legs.
  • We stuck to the trails and didn't come into contact with any poison ivy (though I'm sure it was around)
  • we almost stepped on a baby rattler laying in the middle of the p...

Comments: From what I've heard, this problem no longer exists in its FA form. It now goes at v9 and is called "The Farce" after a glued hold was pried with a crow-bar, making a much larger hold and lowering the grade.

Comments: I worked on this last weekend. Note: do not try upper crux in the sun. Much harder when you're roasting and your rubber is turning to liquid.

Comments: Unless I totally missed it, the anchors are much farther left (15 ft.) from where they are in the beta pic above.

Great climb - definitely got my heart pounding a few times on lead.
