Cali ice is in, will be for a while. Not sure about blue/green. But if you are in the area Hyalite will be good until the road closes November 1st. Bud Martin

Green is in really good shape at least of two weeks ago. Blue was deffantly climbable but it was a bit soft and thin at the top. Besure to check the avalanche conditions as both climbs are at the bottom of a shoot.

Green Gully






Edit: it looks like the pic are not working. When I get home Ill try er again to get some pics of Blue and Green.

Mud season...

From last years closure:

Bozeman, MT Spring break-up conditions on the Bozeman Ranger District will usher in the annual spring closure of the Hyalite Road to motorized use from April 1 May 15. When the road sub-grade thaws, it becomes saturated with snowmelt, unable to support the large amount of vehicle traffic using the road. Motorized use during spring thaw can cause surface cracking and potholes.
