Description 

The Genesis area is deservedly popular with relatively short approaches, reliable ice, and a wide selection of difficulties, including many moderates.

Getting There 

From the Hyalite Creek/Peak aka Grotto Falls Trailhead parking lot, walk back east and cross the road. A roughly 10-15 minute hike on a well-traveled trail brings you to the base of the Genesis I wall. Most of the routes will be described from here.

Hang Over WI3  MT : Hyalite Canyon : Genesis Area
One of the most popular climbs in the canyon. Can be seen from, the parking lot. Can vary from wi3- to wi4 (maybe) depending on the line you choose. Usually gets a lot of heavy traffic, so easy first lead can be done here usually. Climb is 50M so it can be either climbed as 1 or 2 pitches. Need 2 ropes to rap the route from the top, or 1 rope for 2 raps. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
