F.A. Chris Mohr, Eric Forney, Jon Frank (1986). Climbs out of the creek up initial slabs, then up the yawning overhang. Look for creative rests and get ready for the best sport climb in the Refuge! Start at base of big boulder and climb corner. Place a cam (0.75 camalot works great) and a long sling about 30 feet up and then move out onto slab and follow bolts. A full length sling should be used on the 2nd bolt to prevent rope drag. Bolted anchors at top. No move is harder than 5.10 on this climb but the angle is relentless.

this climb is a must do for any climber heading out to the Wichita Mtns!!! My friend and I went out there to do a lot of Trad climbing... but I had to get on this route, and I'm glad I did! This is one of the few climbs that feels true to it's grade though. A lot of the routes out there are stiff ratings... so be careful.
