Has anyone from Montana or northern Wyoming ever checked out Pryor Mountain? It appears that there are some major dolomite formations, at least from the highway, and the Montana Limestone Company at the base is sort of a hint as to what might be found up on the mountain. This would be a close destination for Billings area climbers. Tzilla Rapdrilla

No... but i would love to know more info. If you're in the area and need a partner, i'm down to look even if it's a bust. I have heard rumors of good limestone up there... as well as the west side of 14. Nick Stayner

So requires a bunch o cleaning? Do you think it's worth checking out with all the other quality limestone offerings in the area (Sheridan/Tensleep)? Nick Stayner

I can see how the quality of the rock might vary in different parts of the range, but even Tensleep has some total choss if you hit the wrong spot. Clearly there is a lot of rock there, so maybe scoping a canyon or 2 would be worth it. Wall Rock is really good and that's in the northern part of the range off US 14.

Nick, were you in tensleep at the Boulder Camp on June 23-25?

I was in Tensleep that weekend, though hanging with a big crew from Bozeman, not Boulder (if that's what you mean). Do you live in the area? Nick Stayner

Actually I was referrring to the Boulder Campsite off the old dirt road & there was a crew from Bozeman there too, Sam & others. I was there with my youthful sidekick, Gordy. rockclimbing.com has info on Wall Rock that will get you there & last year we cairned the trail quite a bit better than it was, so you should be able to find it OK. I have a little guide I compiled if you want I can send it. Tzilla Rapdrilla
