DescriptionThere is a main wall on the side near the highway. There are two longer slab climbs on the west side of the rock, and one overhung water route on the east side. There is also another slab climb on the east side of the rock right next to the main wall(right around the corner). The main wall is usually stuck in the shade in a little pocket. Really nice rock, though in the fall it gets really cold. On the main wall the routes are pretty tough. The easiest one is probably a 5.10b/c, the rest look like 12s. Also the 10b/c has some ledges that, if you feel, you would hit before the rope caught you.
Getting ThereIt is roughly 36 miles west of Missoula, just past Alberton. The exit is number 70, it is the one just past Alberton, if your coming from Missoula. You take exit 70, turn around, and get going east on the highway. Within two minutes you will come to a rest stop, where you park. The main wall is right down the hill from the parking lot.
If you are coming from the east it is the rest stop just before Alberton. If you miss it you can turn around at Alberton and back track to it.
