Not exactly, Bozeman's Pass, this "Bozeman Pass" is a climbing area in Rocky Canyon. Know by most as the pass, this collection of crags ranging from 5.6 - 5.13b has an abundance of sport climbing on shorter than normal walls.

High quality rock marked with pockets, crimps and solid faces,
good for begginers and experts. Those looking for the serious goods, warm-up then hit the Training Wall, those looking for a solid, yet mellow outing start at Frat Boy, Recess, or Public Service Wall.

: Limestone - Primarily Sport, All levels, Easy access (15-30 min approach), noisy due to the hi-way. A Large cluster of separated crags, 60m minimum, a 70m for a few lines. Areas can be shaded and cool during afternoon. Upper crags seems to get more sun during the day. Season: Spring, Summer, & Fall.

Getting There 

Take the interstate east out of Bozeman and turn right onto trail creek. Go under the overpass and take a left, drive to the end of the road and park near the end of the fence. From here walk on an old road west for about 200 yards, climb a wooden ladder that has a climbing access tag. Walk another 1/2 mile along old road cut out, just before the climbs you will walk past the old parking area and up to the cliffs. Fat Mans Wall is the first of the climbing spot you will encounter.

Black Russian 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  MT : Bozeman Pass : The Training Wall
This route is 2 lines right of Fright Train on the undercut right side of Training Wall. Get up to the undercut rail and easily clip the first bolt. Pull up to good pockets and yard your feet onto the rail. The route basically follows the bolt line straight up. Great moves in spite of (because of?) 3 silky smooth 2-finger pockets round out a crux and then some spiny dishes and crimps over a bulge will get you to the top. * If this is 11d, then China Crisis is 12c ... or if China Crisis is 12a, t...[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
