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 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.
DescriptionOne of the best moderate sport climbs in the refuge and a must-do on any visit to Desperate Dome. Begin 60’ left of Fight Club and just right of Fistfighter and enjoy big moves on comfy, square-cut holds up the left edge of a triangular-shaped pillar. The technical crux is at the 3rd bolt but the pump factor may pose an additional challenge for some.
Finish at the two bolt anchor atop the pillar or continue fifteen feet up a low fifth-class left-angling crack to a big ledge with a tree anchor. This anchor can also be accessed from above and makes a convenient TR anchor for The Warm Up or Fistfighter. -banks Banks 2016
