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.
DescriptionTree Route goes up the gulley right of Nike Route. First 5.5 pitch ends at a tree a little less than half way up the route. Second 5.5 pitch ends at a 2-bolt anchor. A good route for new leaders.
Rappel the route with two ropes, or possibly do a 3rd class walk off. It is also possible to scramble/climb (exposed) left then down to the anchor for Nike route to rappel.
