Homestake Pass is scattered with boulders and small crags. There are some developed areas and no doubt lots more to be done. The climbs are up to two pitches. The rock is coarse, solid granite.
Homestake Pass is on I-90 about 7 miles east of Butte. To access Railroad Rocks, park at the Rest Area on the west bound side of I-90,near the top of the pass. For Dragon's Back, park on the west-bound shoulder near mile marker 238.
