DescriptionPLEASE SEE ACCESS NOTICE. This area has a plenty of sandstone bouldering for a couple dozen good boulder problems and more than a handful of fun sessions. There is a decent range of difficulty for most boulderers to have a good time. The quality of the sandstone varies. Generally, its pretty low quality. Its prone to breaking in any wet or significantly humid weather. Its strong enough rock that people come back to climb some more.
The landings are not fantastic, but are acceptable. Some slope noticeably downwards, have plenty of rock and talus at the base, or need to be built up more. Bring at least 2 pads for most problems.
Climb at your own risk with area access, rock quality, and landings in mind.
ACCESS NOT GUARANTEED Details
This property is one of many owned by the Charles Page Trust Fund, a private local trust, according to online Tulsa County plat maps (property ownership maps). The property is not lived on or maintained, so serious worries such as being arrested or shot at for trespassing are out the window, but official access has not been negotiated. So far no one has had any trouble with the locals or police but its possible anyone could be confronted or fined. PLEASE BE MINDFUL, COURTEOUS, AND KEEP A LOW IMPACT.
Getting There5 minutes west of Sand Springs. Take the S 177th W Ave exit off of US 412/64. Park off the corner of W 9th St and S 174th W Ave, right next to the highway. Hike east for 1/4 mile alongside and below the highway to the 4 large white trees. About 20ft after a large fallen branch take a left onto a rough trail into the trees. Continue on the trail for 500ft or so uphill, walking around the right side of the 2 large warm-up boulders to avoid most of the thorns. The trail leads to the Citadel and Gargoyle.
