Comments: "Back in the 1970s, climbing’s cognoscenti had ruled that bolts must be used only as a last resort. I learned to climb at Enchanted Rock near Austin, Texas, and at Quartz Mountain in Oklahoma, areas where face climbs might have one bolt every 50 feet—if you were lucky. However, today’s sport climbers frighten easily and the rules have changed. Many of the routes I cut my teeth on have been retro-bolted to assuage the fragile psyches of today’s climbers. These days, bolts are placed no more t... more >>

Comments: Bad Crack is just that, the bad, wide crack. Before the recently bolted sport lines, there was only Bad Crack, it began on the face to the right or in the big crack. If you climbed the face, you would ascend until you could comfortably join the crack about 10/15 feet up. It continues on to the top of the buttress where you can build an anchor and walk off/rap.

Recent entries have been added to clear up some of the confusion. It looked as though the two updated bolted lines were entered under t... more >>

Comments: Christopher-

Thanks you for the recent contributions, but please consider our aim is quality route descriptions that go beyond the guidebook. I believe Josh's comment is sincere, and all he is doing is asking you for more usable information. My intent here is not to single you out, but ask that all contributors to Montana, if you are not already, to step it up. A majority of the regular users here do an excellent job and put a lot of energy into their work. The site is not perfect, and every e... more >>

Comments: clean, brilliant, climbing up great rock. completely independent of it's neighbors, this well-engineered line really compliments the area. if you like the style of climbing at the glass ocean, i'd highly recommend this. bring at least 12 draws/slings, i had 4 slings which helped cut down the obvious areas of drag.

Comments: "This has to be one of the best, if not the best, of the Contor-Taylor team’s routes in BCC."

you can take J.S. out of bcc, but you can't take the bcc out of J.S.
