Sorry, weather is currently unavailable.
This small gneiss crag offers anyone in Bozeman a place to go after school or work and place some gear. There are a variety of quality routes here ranging from 5.6 to 5.12d. Sport, mixed, and mainly trad lines are the variety of styles you will get along with an amazing view into the tree laden Gallatin National Forest. There is a possibility to set up top ropes on several of the climbs. Hike up and around the east side of the crag, and use a set of upper rappel anchors to get yourself safely down to the big ledge with the route anchors on it. Quick, you've got 2 hours until sunset!
From Bozeman, head south on 19th Ave. Take this all the way south out of town about 5 miles, rounding the big bend to the west. From this bend, go about 3/4 mile further and turn left up into Hyalite Canyon (Hyalite Canyon Road). Take this road for about 3 miles and park in the Practice Rock pull out on the right hand side. Crag is across the road and up the hill (via trail) about 5-10 minutes.
