A windy, open area with quite a few crags suitable for rock climbing all-year-round. Bouldering, trad, and sport routes abound in the Revenue Flats area situated west of Norris, Montana. Find gorgeous views of the Tobacco Root Mountains but be prepared to share your space with ATVs and shooters.

Getting There 

From Bozeman, MT head west on Hwy 191 to Four Corners. Drive straight ahead as the road turns into Hwy 84 toward Norris, MT. At Norris continue straight ahead again onto the dirt Sterling Rd. At this point directions become difficult as dirt roads stray off in multiple directions. For an online map of these directions visit:

Watch out for hicks who set off homemade bombs (wish I were kidding) shoot at the rocks that you are on for fun (again wish I were kidding). Find the fishbowl for a great campsite. Looks like a big dome and you crawl up into the middle which sinks about 40 feet.
