We will stop at Wichita Mountain for a few days on our way going west. Can anybody help us out with a copy of an overview of the area, infos about best areas for bouldering etc.

I know there is a new guidebook and buying it is a good thing to support the local climbing, but since we stay there only a few days, I'm sorry  ... :-)

And also where can we buy a rope? Any shops in the area?

Not a fan of FaceBook but the OKC climbing group is very helpful.

For bouldering, Mountain Project is probably the most complete database out there for the Wildlife Refuge. This guy Ryan was going to make a guidebook, but he has some info in his old blog: http://oklahomabouldering.blogspot.com/ There used to be a gear shop in Medicine Park, but I can't imagine it is still open. If you are going through Oklahoma City, stop by Backwoods or one of the climbing gyms for a rope, you may even be able to convince an employee there to show you around the refuge. If you are going solely for bouldering, I would suggest Quartz Mountain, the problems are all in a much closer proximity, easier to find and generally of much higher quality. A lot of them are even covered in the new guidebook! Like Blakevan said, OKC Climb can be helpful too.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
