Oklahoma rocks! We have an abundance of rock (granite, sandstone, and limestone) and very few climbers! Oklahoma has it all, great bouldering, hard sport, trad, and even some aid routes.
The mecca of Oklahoma climbing is the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, located in the southwestern part of the state near the town of Lawton. Routes on awesome granite up to 400 feet in height and vast fields of boulders provide more than enough problems to keep someone here for life.
Quartz Mountain is located 45 minutes west of the Wichita's. This slabby crag is where to go if you like run-outs on high-quality granite.
Like sandstone? Check out Robber's Cave, located in the Southeastern part of the state. Robber's Cave has routes and boulder problems of all angles, and the scenery is nice. Sandstone abounds in this part of Oklahoma so don't be surprised if you find other unknown or secret areas.
Chandler Park is the limestone bouldering mecca of the state and is located within 15 minutes of downtown Tulsa. Problems range from 15-25 feet in height, and with problems from V0- to V12, you are bound to find a problem within your ability.
It takes all of us working together to make a great route database. The goal is to have a lot of info regarding each route that will allow us to truly build a consensus. Everyone is encouraged to participate.
