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.
Scramble up the base of Hidden Wall to the left of Serpentine to the base of a diagonal (left to right) crack. Climb through a small facy section before reaching the crack. Climb up and right in the gorgeous hand crack with smeary feet until you reach a vertical finger crack. climb the finger crack to straight up and over the lip to a good crack for your anchor. (bring gear for anchor)
