Description 

The more sunny of the two side-by-side canyons in this area. Features some larger, more exposed walls of pocketed limestone.

Getting There 

Drive the only road along the east side of Canyon Ferry, the turnoff is just across the street from the "Hellgate Campground" (on the east side of the road). Drive about 1 mile, to the obvious entrance to the canyon. Park here, so as not to block the road. From the parking area, it should be about a 5-minute walk to the first bolts.

A wandering road of a route, the crux is definitely hanging on to moderate holds while figuring out where to go. Some of the bolts are a reach to clip due to hollow rock where you wish there was a bolt.The route looks like a nice 10 but is "deviously slopey." Overall a good climb on fun rock, and can be a different access to the 13a Devil's Highway pitch....[more]   Browse More Classics in MT

Wow, this place looks fantastic. Multiple shark fin type limestone walls reminds me of a mini-Potrero Chico. You could put 100s of climbs in here. Was pretty just to go see.
