There is a main wall on the side near the highway. There are two longer slab climbs on the west side of the rock, and one overhung water route on the east side. There is also another slab climb on the east side of the rock right next to the main wall(right around the corner). The main wall is usually stuck in the shade in a little pocket. Really nice rock, though in the fall it gets really cold. On the main wall the routes are pretty tough. The easiest one is probably a 5.10b/c, the rest look like 12s. Also the 10b/c has some ledges that, if you feel, you would hit before the rope caught you.
It is roughly 36 miles west of Missoula, just past Alberton. The exit is number 70, it is the one just past Alberton, if your coming from Missoula. You take exit 70, turn around, and get going east on the highway. Within two minutes you will come to a rest stop, where you park. The main wall is right down the hill from the parking lot.

This route is the most right route on the main wall. It starts out just past the corner. The move past the first bolt is a pretty hard one, with a big reach. The last bolt is sketchy, becasue if you miss and fall you will hit a ledge before the rope catches you, and you will probably break yourself....[more] Browse More Classics in MT
