Highway climbing at its best, for NW Montana. Crowded but easily accessed (bumper belays anyone?) and complete with a port-a-potty!

Getting There 

Drive North from Eureka on Hwy 37 to the Koocanusa Bridge. From there go another 3 miles until the large pull out on the left.

Climbing Season

For the All Locations area.

Weather station 8.2 miles from here

Cripple Crack 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  MT : Stone Hill : Holds Up Bluff North
A classic beginners route, either on lead or toprope, and is just plain fun. Because of this it's usually crowded, but worth the wait. Head up the crack using mostly face holds to the chain anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in MT

Hey Sara,

If you happen to see this and have a chance, could you take the "s" off of "Holds" and stick it on the end of "Bluff"? Thanks:)
