This crag is home to two of Mill Creek's best moderate cracks. Ladyfingers (the definite classic) & Manly Fingertips are pretty shady in the afternoon if I remember correctly. Strangely enough, I've never seen people on these things, even when the sport routes on Peanuts & Roadside Fins are occupied (which would be a relatively crowded day at the area in itself). Righteous are the Brave is a great 5.8 corner and a good warmup for the rest of the cracks in the area. Both crack climbs are clean and protect very well.
This isn't described as its own crag in Jojo's guidebook, but it is independent and located between the Peanuts Wall/Raspberry Wall on the downstream (left) side and the Roadside Fins on the upstream (right) side. The acute left-facing corner of "Righteous are the Brave" is easily visible from the road and located literally about 5 seconds from it!

One of southwest Montana's nicest cracks despite its short length. Start with a short wider section that delivers you on a large ledge. From here, climb a brief section of hands and then enjoy the excellent tips and fingers crack (the crux), seeking out good feet outside the crack. Quite nice. ...[more] Browse More Classics in MT
