River sandstone bouldering area!!! Great for a day or two of fun if you are in the area and really easy approach. Variety of problems so there is fun here for everyone.
I have not been able to get with some of the guys that developed it or found a complete topo to reference so thought there are many problems listed I am not certain of first ascents or even the names of the routes if they are listed wrong just message me or email me and i'll get to fixin em right away!
Manford, OK nestled west of Tulsa about 20 minutes or so. From highway 51 and highway 48 head north about a mile or so. park near the train tracks (safely please) and walk west down the train tracks to the river. head south along the small cliff band until you reach your desired area!
Weather station 2.6 miles from here

from what i've seen it's best to go when it's really cold or hasn't rained for a long while. i've seen the rock sweat pretty bad on hot days too. prepare to get muddy.
