Ker Plunk 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  OK : Wichita Wildlife Refuge : ... : Lichen Wall
Small questionable placements protect the lower moves that traverse up to the ramp. Up the ramp and belay at the tree. The 2nd pitch is maybe 5.5 up to some chains to rap.The climb was named Ker Plunk after Charlie fell a substantial distance and lived, after landing in the river. In reality, it was a miracle he was not killed. Charlie was a fantastic climber and pushed the limits. But this was enough to pack it up climbing, and too many of his 9 lives were spent on this one....[more]   Browse More Classics in OK
