Access Issue: This area is designated as Charon Details
Currently the the US Fish and Wildlife Service is reviewing the Comprehensive Conservation Plan and reviewing activities for compatibility. Contact the Access Fund or the Wichita Mountains Climber's Coalition for more information on how you can get involved in keeping the tradition of climbing safe in the Wildlife Refuge. Use extra care to avoid doing anything to change the natural resources in any way.
Access Issue: Access is always an issue here. Details
Please do not litter and observe all regulations. We had to fight to regain access at one time, and we don't want to lose the privilege again. Local ethics and refuge regulations are that no bolting is permitted unless expressly authorized by the park. Leave the hammer and nails at home, no fixed gear please. Everything will go clean.
Very nice wall, but a bit more difficult to access due to the scramble to get here. Routes range from 5.8 to 5.11b.
From the Dog Wall base. I would recommend throwing on your harness and using a sling on the fixed line that traverses over the pit/cave just up the cove. The pit is deep and a fall has resulted in major injuries. A rescue would be difficult to conduct in this area. Just after the pit, climb a few ledges and the routes are to the left.
