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.
Climb moderate terrain to the first bolt and then move up through a series of crimps and a couple underclings with technical footwork (crux) to reach the second bolt. Move up to the alcove and rest, the final 35 feet of this climb is some of the best rock in the refuge.
This route is just right of Rap bolters and climbs the prominent black water streak up the main wall.
6 or 7 QD's. Anchors and Chains at top.
