Storm Castle Creek, formerly Squaw Creek is a great limestone climbing spot with, on average harder climbs. It is sunny almost the whole day, i.e "scortched earth". A good spot to get a few routes in before or after work. Normally when i have gone there on nicer days there has been one or two groups climbing but its not bad or busy for MT standards.
Climbs are located on the east side of the river and is a short drive from both Bozeman and Big Sky. Turn off at Squaw Creek for the storm castle hiking trail, then take a left after going over the bridge. Look for a faint trail that begins in the woods to your right.
