Description 

Several moderates, with routes ranging up into the 5.11 range. Mostly mixed routes with tricams and tcu's being a general good idea. The longer of the routes only reach 100 feet, with easy walk offs. For the most part, a 60 or 70 meter rope will suffice.

Getting There 

From missoula, take 93 south. Take a right onto 12 heading towards Lolo. 0.5 miles past Lolo Hot Springs Resort, take a left onto East Fork Lolo Creek Road. Take an immediate left and drive 0.8 miles to a gravel pull out. Head up a wash and you will be there in a couple of minutes.

This is a good spring area to go to. The seasonal gate closure makes some of the approaches around Lolo pretty crappy, but this one is only about a mile walk.

Fun climbing. Many bolts found loose, were tightened and a few manky spinners pulled, patched, and replaced. Nice Montana rock!
