Central States Climbing Heaven. Most climbers are surprised to learn that Oklahoma has granite, and then that it is high quality, they are even more stunned. Quartz Mountain is a great tune up for Yosemite. The Wichita Wildlife Refuge has stunning splitters with top notch granite. Robbers Cave and others spots exist as well.
Wichitas and Quartz are south central, while Robbers and others are on the east side.
Oklahoma Select "A Climber's Guide" is available at Sharpend books. In this 2004 guide book author Tony Mayse covers the best routes at Quartz Mountain and the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.

Pride is the tall problem that goes straight up the middle of the very tall face. Start on some obvious crimps and move up the water streak some tricky moves toward the top leads to a long move to grab the lip. shorter people may have to give a little hop to reach the finishing jugs while taller people can just reach up and grab. To downclimb walk accross the boulder to a tree and shimmy on over and down to the ground. ...[more] Browse More Classics in OK

Believe it or not, Oklahoma has rock climbing. Not just any rock climbing, but rocks that are known for developing climbers that are making names for themselves. One thing climbers love is a little friendly competition, and Rocktown Climbing Gym in downtown Oklahoma City will host the Flashpoint Climbing Competition on Saturday.

Hey I am from South Dakota and moving to Wichita, KS sometime in August. I was wondering how for all these areas are from Wichita?
Or just in general, how far the nearest areas are from Wichita?

There is bouldering along the river in Tulsa (170 miles). Wichita Mountains are 250 miles, around 4 hours. Quartz Mountain and Robbers Cave are each about 300 miles, according to maps. "A Climbers Guide" is a good reference. In Wichita there are several good climbing walls. Three of the YMCAs and some fitness clubs have good walls. Kansas Cliff Club, in south Wichita, is the only climbing specific location with indoor and outdoor routes. Welcome to Wichita!

Networking with climbers in different areas is about the only guide OK offers sadly. I imagine as it becomes more popular, and more areas like the wichita's become developed for bouldering the possibility for a book could arise. Don't see that being anytime soon though.
