Comments: This is called Flashdance 5.8

Yes there is a decent run out from the last bolt to the chains. A .5 protects this

Comments: called "Bop 'Till You Drop" 5.10

a well protected route with safe well thought out clipping stances.

I do not recall any issues with thin chains

Comments: Here are the correct route names with the correct grades.

The crag is called the "Dance Crag"

The chimney is called 'Bombay Boogie' 5.7

manky unnecessary bolt before entering chimney where finger to hand size cams. For now you can lower off the bolt midway.

The route just to the right with the small roof

Waltz to Hands 5.9

The supposed sketch lay back route is "Bop 'Till You Drop" 5.10. I don't recall any issues with too thin of chains.

The route furthest to the left on the west facing ... more >>

Comments: This route is called 'Bombay Boogie" 5.7 not .10+

I would definitely agree that the grade is consistent with the Bitterroot. You should climb any route before you try to take up space for a route on MP.

\There is a bolt midway which is not needed and the anchors have been chopped. It be great to see some new ones put in

Comments: Yes often times when routes are bolted the difficulty is easier than placing gear because gear can often time occupy crucial holds. Rating off a TR ascent is weak

Comments: The wide pitch is long but really low key. There's plenty of smaller pro on the pitch. I'd say that instead of bringing a #5 bring some longer slings and girth hitch the chockstones.

Looks like it could take gear in most parts from the photo.

Comments: The approaches here are about 10 minutes.

This was an interesting area to visit with rock quality ranging from complete shit (climbing 101) to excellent (Home Boys, Bodh., etc.) I wouldn't go as far to say that this is a destination area but certainly worth a visit.

Very tight spaced bolts

HELMETS ARE A MUST!!!!!!! Expect to get hit with something. also the winds can be insane!

Comments: first bolt is about 25, 30 feet high with really shitty gear behind thin flakes. Really sandy rock makes smearing feel pretty insecure on runouts.

Flake above 2nd bolt on first pitch is not long to this world.

Comments: Attention:

If you decide to go left after the bolt ladder then listen up.

In the Supertopo guide it tells you to sling the flake next to the tree by belay six.

DO NOT CLIMB OR SLING THIS FLAKE!

IT IS LOOSE AND IS NOT LONG TO THE ROUTE

YOU WILL DIE

Seriously though the flake is really going to hurt or kill someone and should really be taken of before it does

Comments: I would recommend bringing a #2 TCU or Mastercam to get you off the ground. The first bolt isn't that hard but a fall would be really nasty.


Location: MT : Kootenai Canyon : Outermost Limits : Elmo 2nd Pitch (5.11b R)
By: Josh Kornish When: Nov 23, 2011

view comment >>
Comments: From the top of the first pitch of elmo head up into a short section of thin face climbing into a very thin flaring crack. Make sure to protect the crack well as a fall will result in decking and impalement on a very sharp stump. Once atop the thin crack push through two easy roof mantles and you are at the chains.

Protection: Bolts for the thin face and roofs. Small offset brassies and/or some micro C3s/Mastercams.

This climb is best climbed when it isn't blazing hot out.
Have fun!
