Description

River sandstone bouldering area!!! Great for a day or two of fun if you are in the area and really easy approach. Variety of problems so there is fun here for everyone.

At the start of the hike the water level is usually somewhat high but don't let that dissuade you. The main walls and especially the Purgatory area are slightly higher elevation and usually not in the water. PLEASE do not climb on wet rock here. This area does not get much sun and therefore is slow to dry. The rock is also a softer sandstone and is more vulnerable to breaking.

Getting There

Mannford, OK nestled west of Tulsa about 20 minutes or so. From highway 51 and highway 48 head north about a mile or so. Park near the train tracks (safely please) and walk west down the train tracks to the river. As long as you stay 4 ft from the tracks it is not trespassing so please do not walk on the tracks themselves. Head south along the small cliff band until you reach your desired area!
