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 problem starts on 2 ledges and works up through some sidepulls to a huge flake. Just trust your feet and you'll make it up this great highball of a warm up.
The route is on the left(Northish) side of the Blackout Boulder, if you're facing the overhanging/roof side. It starts almost to the back of the boulder on two small ledges.
The fall is sloped, and there are a lot of bushes nearby. A few pads and a good spotter.
