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.

This is the first rout you come to on the left side when hiking up the gully to Treasure cove. Start the climb on delicate pincher's and slopers to gain the short lived crack. Stick a cam in the crack (1.5 inches) as high in the crack as you can and crank up to the first bolt. Continue on a little easier terrain to the second bolt. Then pull yourself over the lip and onto less vertical rock (crux). Then run it out to slanted crack and place your piece of pro (1.5 inch cam) and climb licheny rock to the tree.
Start the rout just to the left of the crack, then gain the crack once off the ground. To get down, either leave webbing on the tree (not recommended) or climb up and left and circle back down on treacherous 4th and easy 5th class down climbing.
