The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, the Access Fund and the Wichita Mountains Climbers Coalition have come together to support and present a quality climbing experience at the Refuge. The following guidelines have been established between the three organizations.
Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge offers the finest rock climbing opportunities in this region of the country. The good quality granite, multi-pitch routes, wilderness setting, and fine weather have all contributed to make the Refuge a popular climbing destination.
Along with this popularity has come noticeable impacts to some areas of the Refuge. Soil erosion, trail degradation, damage to trees, shrubs, lichen and mosses, litter, human waste, and proliferation of fixed anchors are current problems.
In order to insure that open access, minimal regulation , and a healthy environment will continue to be a part of your climbing experiences at the Refuge, each climber is encouraged to do everything he or she can to prevent or reduce adverse impacts.
