If you can still find Jake Mergenthaler's "Central Montana Rock" book in print it's definitely worth having, particularly for getting to some of the more obscure areas.

Cool area with a lot of sport climbing much of which is not listed here. There looks to be some cool boulders on W Shore Drive as well. Grades here range from fluffy to sandbagged. Probably best to leave the rack at home as even the cracks have been bolted here. Avalanche has a much wider range of climbs then Hells gate.
