Comments: looks cool...although pulling with care is in direct opposition to my hamster style, which calls for indiscriminate yarding with maximum crushing force! exploding holds mid route only adds to my experience...

Comments: Bikes are awesome for this approach...the one time I have been up there we had bikes and used them to escape a rager t-storm

Comments: after the first pitch, continue up generation x (5.9 pg-13) and the 5.9 alt finish of the tower for a sweet 5.9 linkup. Also, the new bolts up there are in a poor spot. There are hairline cracks all around where the bolts were placed. More than one of my friends has gotten up there and felt they are sketchy. A rearrangement of these anchor bolts may be in order...

Comments: i recall placing a crucial purple tcu on the second pitch, which made things exciting.

Comments: i found the face climbing crux to be relatively positive...you are not forced to mantle if you hit the crimps right. getting to the first jug was harder for me.

Comments: ya, adventurish for sure, but i recall some pretty obvious and secure climbing, until that headwall splitter petered out for some reachy moves high above a purple C3. I believe that the headwall pitch was the physical and psychological crux, and the chimney below it was easier, not 9+...

Comments: Um, all of the new routes I was a part of this year in montana WERE published, on this website, so this "no publish" ethic is not that strict. Both of the new SW Montana guides have published alpine zones in them. Its not a secret, its not crowded, and it is a big deal.

Comments: Climbing strait up the podded cracks and then traversing left is an easier variation that may be slightly less terrifying.

Comments: No deep water soloing around east rosebud...there is potential for more traditional routes though
