Access is always an issue here. MORE INFO >>>


Split by a large prowl the wall is split into a left and right sections. Both sides have quality lines. The right side lines are the longer of the two.

Getting There 

From the parking area follow the trail into the narrows. Zoo Wall will be on your right, a well defined trail switches back up to the base and is easy to identify. Just look for The Dihedral and it's signature roof.


Here is a pretty good layout of the routes at Zoo Wall. This shot was taken from the other side of the canyon. It will look a little different during approach. All the climbs on the left can be accessed by climbing through the cave next to The Dihedral. Be careful, as it can be really slick when it has been wet.

The Dihedral 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  OK : Wichita Wildlife Refuge : ... : Zoo Wall
Climb ledge to ledge, great stances abound. Plenty of backstep opportunities and no hands rests/placements. This route gets greasy, so it can easily psyche you out. The crux is moving under the roof, which looks intimidating from the ground but all the positive holds are solid making this thing a blast for anyone. Only downside, is you can't get a clean fall with so many ledges....[more]   Browse More Classics in OK
