  • Description 

    There are two really nice boulders just left of the stream (if approaching from steak dinner). The boulders can be reached by continuing about 200 yards upstream from Steak Dinner. There are also a few good problems on a bluff near the base of the mountain. These have probably been climbed, but I don't know. If you have any info about names, grades, or FAs, let me know.

    Getting There 

    Park same place as steak dinner. Walk RIGHT up the creek bed from the parking lot. Look for a boulder cluster on the left.

    Back from the Dead V6 7A  Oklahoma : Wichita Wildlife Refuge : ... : Upstream Boulders
    Back from the Dead is a variation of Lazarus that eliminates the entire right face of the dihedral. Make a few powerful compression moves using the sloper rail for the right hand and some undercling crimps for the left hand. Fire for the lip to the left, then top out the same way as the Unknown variation....[more]   Browse More Classics in Oklahoma
