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.
Located at the top of Sunset Peak. The crag is west facing. Be prepared for a hard day of climbing.
There is a pull-out at the far west end of the refuge to park in. It’s the last pullout on the left side of the road before crossing a cattle guard and exiting the park. There should be a sign that says “witchita mountains wildlife refuge” walk towards that. To the right there is a trail that takes you south meandering through the woods. Stay on this until you reach an open field. If you keep walking south you'll reach a sort of gully that is full of trees and brush. After a short walk up the hill you should be able to see the face of Big Whiskey to your left. It is big and covered with bright yellow/green lichen. Take the path of least resistance to the base of the cliff. The trail is more apparent the closer you get to it, but it’s a low traffic area so in spring and summer expect to make your own trail.
