Description 

Beehive Mountain is located in the southern portion of the Spanish peaks Wilderness Area of the Gallatin National forest, a little over an hour south of Bozeman, and just North of Big Sky Ski Resort. It is a pristine Alpine environment but has one of the shortest approaches in the state for such climbing. There are quite a few routes on the southeast face, all multipitch trad routes from 5.6-5.11 on high quality granite gneiss.
Descent can be done in either of the two couloirs that flank the southeast face. There are rappel slings at both, which make things faster, but descent is possible without a rope. Consider backing up the slings with your own.

Getting There 

From Bozeman take 191 south toward Big Sky. Turn west at the Big Sky Road and go into the Mountain Village(9.5 miles). Continue past the Village for another 1.5 miles and turn right on Beehive Basin Road, which is well marked. Follow signs for the trailhead, another 1.8 miles. It is a 4 mile hike to the basin, which provides nice camping(Wilderness) and another 1.5 miles to the summit.

New World Route 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  MT : Beehive Peak
Climb a nice corner crack system starting just to the right of the "Original route" and left of "Worker Bee" Belay on a nice ledge with a small horn. Continue up wandering cracks for a full rope length through a small roof until you reach easier terrain. Finish with a moderate 5.5/5.6 shorter pitch then scramble on 4th class terrain to the summit. This climb has lots of options to break it up into more shorter pitches or just keep them cruising....[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
