Description 

Apparently there were some pretty crazy prison riots in Hominy in the early 80's so I thought the penitentiary would be a fitting name for the climbing area.

Getting There 

From Hominy head west to the municipal lake. You will see the main cliff from the boat ramp. I did some exploring and the best stuff looks to be from the main cliff and west but there is more to be found out there. Once you launch into the lake you can easily access any of the cliffs or boulders from the shore.

Solitary Confinement V0- 4-  Oklahoma : Hominy : The Penitentiary
The whole reason I came to this place is because from the opposite shore this crack looks like a world class off-width...unfortunately it's hands with a lot of ledges so it is a very easy climb. I probably spent an hour cleaning it and it still is worth while. Crux is probably getting off the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in Oklahoma
