Description 

In the Climber's Guide to Montana, Caffrey describes this range thus: "A compact plateau with concentrated peaks of the same general elevation. Loose fractured rock from top to bottom. Elevation span 6400'."

Fairly off-the-beaten-path area, with old, dark metamorphic rock.

A number of high, craggy peaks to explore with old remnants of mining exploration.

Located southeast of Butte. East of Twin Bridges, west of Norris, north of Virginia City, and bounded on the north by the Jefferson River and I-90.

Getting There 

Typical approach into the area is up Mill Creek Road out of Sheridan.

A really nice and clean vertical face with fun movements. The problem follows a zig zag of slanting finger seams to a jug and a nice top out. Start low right and work the thin finger seam up and left to a hole. From there find the small side pull that will help you reach the jug and finish with an easy top out. Walk off to the right. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
