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.
Description [Suggest Change]
Stand start match on a jug on the left side of the face, then traverse right across slopers and crimps to a prominent jug about 10 feet off the deck. Look for an interesting thumbdercling hold just under the lip for the right hand about halfway through the traverse.
Location [Suggest Change]
If you are facing the Diagonal Crack problem, walk around the boulder clockwise. Trapeze Artist faces roughly west. Look for a nearby boulder that can be stood upon to chalk up the holds.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Pad. It may be possible to top out after reaching the finish jug, but the branches from a nearby tree make it a somewhat sketchy proposition. Dropping off is recommended.
