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 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.
DescriptionDon’t let its name and unassuming appearance fool you; this route packs a surprising punch. Begin 30’ left and slightly downhill from The Slab Route at the base of an obtuse right-facing dihedral with a small roof eight feet off the mat. Ascend this feature but don't let yourself get pinned in the corner. Traverse 10’ right along an obvious break to gain a hands to fist crack. Fight your way up this crack to a huge sloping belay ledge. Belay and rap from a fixed cable through a thread at the back of the ledge.
