Description 

The biggest and most traveled area at Storm Castle Creek, this main area is primarily a sport venue with one memorable trad line. The majority of the crag faces south and southwest so expect sun the entire day. A great place for cold, fall/winter climbing, this is also a nice escape on cloudy days when you need a quick fix. Rock quality varies from choss to bullet proof, so don't let your guard down too soon.

Getting There 

This main area is the first crag you reach after the hike from the main lot. Park and walk past the dumpster to a faint trail to the right. Follow this trail for about 10 - 15 minutes, the first routes you come should will be The Bad and/or The Ugly.

Average Size Person's Perspective: A fine route on limestone pods and shelves. The crux for most is the right step and clip after the lower angle section but it differs for other people. The route starts steep then mellows into easy climbing before moving right through a slight bulge (and great hand jam) to the rap rings, rings can be tricky to clip.Little Person's Perspective: Great route, with a pumpy start that transitions into great crimps up a column. The obvious crux is at the sloppy ve...[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
