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.
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.
All granite bouldering. Very secluded, and lots of shady spots. The rock quality is awesome, most of it is solid but there is some choss. Some of it is wicked sharp. I'm sure tons of people have bouldered around here over the years so if you have any pictures of problems you've done, or want me to change any of the FA's on stuff I put up here, just email me and I'll be more than happy to do so.
Follow the same trail that leads you to Lost Dome. Some of the bouldering is off the trail to the right, just when you get to Lost Dome. The biggest concentration is a few hundred feet in front of the main wall though. All of it is within 500 yards of Lost Dome though.
