I've never been to the Wichita's in OK, but plan to meet up with a friend there in the spring. What pieces will help complete my puzzle for the area?

I have:
Nuts - single set 1 to 13
Hexes - single set 1 to 11
B.D. C4 Cams - single set 0.4 to 3


Any tips will be great. Thanks.

Whoops!


So the ranges of things I've got are ok? Would it be good to have double sizes in any of the cams?

I climb up there as much as i can. which area are you planning on climbing? different area's take some different sizes. some of the routes on upper Scott take some larger cams, up to C4 #4, other places take smaller. in general it sounds like you'll have a good range, i like to double up on C4 #2 and #3. and just fyi, you have to spend a day climbing in the Narrows, it is one of the best spots up there. if you need any route maps let me know.

Looks pretty good. Defiantly spend most of your time at the Narrows.
Quite a few of the routes need a #4. Doubles of 2 and 1 if you can. I use the 3 a lot too but have lived without two of them. I'm glad to see hexes on your list because the Wichita's eat them up really well.
For sure do not miss Crazy Alice on the Zoo Wall, classic.
Hit me up if you want any more route suggestions.
