Steep(for Billings) climbing on positive holds. Can be dirty after rain but fun nevertheless.
Far west/left end of Gregory.
Bolts. The second bolt is poorly situated. If toproping beware, the third bolt has sharp edges which can and has cut a tensioned rope. 2 bolt anchor in a somewhat questionable block.

@ 45.804185,-108.591963 Fun steep climbing on fairly juggy holds. Would be great for a workout. The down side is the top anchors. The bolts are thin and flex visibly when you load them to rap down, plus the "rock" (I use the word generously) they are in is hollow sounding when you knock on it. There isn't a good natural anchor option either. This route would definitely be worth upgrading the anchor, but how? Maybe stakes driven into ground?
Edit: As of my last visit 5/14/2013 route is now equipped with a much better top anchor (1/2" carriage bolts & beefy chains).

I think you're mistaken, looks the same to me. There are a new pair of bolts and chains off to the right at the top of a less than stellar looking chimney/rib.
