Description

Several moderates, with routes ranging up into the 5.11 range. Mostly mixed routes with tricams and tcu's being a general good idea. The longer of the routes only reach 100 feet, with easy walk offs. For the most part, a 60 or 70 meter rope will suffice.

Getting There

From missoula, take 93 south. Take a right onto 12 heading towards Lolo. 0.5 miles past Lolo Hot Springs Resort, take a left onto East Fork Lolo Creek Road. Take an immediate left and drive 0.8 miles to a gravel pull out. Head up a wash and you will be there in a couple of minutes.

This is a good spring area to go to. The seasonal gate closure makes some of the approaches around Lolo pretty crappy, but this one is only about a mile walk. Apr 30, 2009
Fun climbing. Many bolts found loose, were tightened and a few manky spinners pulled, patched, and replaced. Nice Montana rock! Sep 13, 2014

The directions to this area are outdated. After turning off of the highway onto east fork of lolo creek gravel road you go 150 meters to a large gravel parking lot on the left of the road. There is a "road" with a gate across it that heads north out of the parking lot, but it looks like the gate has not been open for at least a couple years. You walk up this road for a little more than 0.6 miles past the gate and a little after a sharp bend there is a pretty obvious trail heading up a gully to the base of the climbs. Jun 21, 2017
