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.
DescriptionClimb the NW corner of the Playground Boulder (this will be the first route you see when walking uphill from the drainage).
Start with right hand of good jug, find feet, climb straight up the arete/slab. Slab your way through the top way, going over the lumpy-bulge. Topping out is a bit scary if you're not solid on slabs.
LocationNW arete on Playground boulder.
Playground boulder is about 5 mins past (south) of dam boulder, head a bit uphill (left).
