  • Description 

    This particular smaller rock lies to the R of Wall of Winter Warmth (obvious taller crag in the area) and across the stream from Plotinus Wall on a hillside with various enticing rocks. This entry was made to help organize the Lower Dream Canyon area.


    A. Big Sky Corner, 12+, 1p, 90', bolts.
    B. Big Sky Arete, 11+, 1p, 80', bolts & gear.
    C. Sweetest Taboo, 10+ R, 1p, 80', bolts & gear.
    D. Mine All Mine, 10-, 1p, 60', bolts.

    Getting There 

    Refer to directions noted in Lower Dream Canyon. Park at Boulder Falls, hike up to the hole up & L of the Falls, drop down to water level. There are single bolts set for an exciting Tyrolean but it may be best to climb during low water of fall, winter, or early spring when you can hop across on boulders or wade more manageable currents. The access trail is faint and less obvious during greener times of the year.

    Another approach is from the Upper Dream Canyon parking lot. From the left side of the lot look downhill and follow cairns leading towards Boulder Canyon, skirting a shack with a decrepit outhouse on the left. Weave your way down to the impressive Big Sky routes, then on down to Mine All Mine. Watch out for private property.
