Description Suggest change

Sunny, southwest facing, limestone, sport climbing. Excellent views of Paradise Valley. The rock varies from excellent black dolomite to the lighter variety which still can be very good. Climbing is possible year round here but probably best in the spring and fall. Most of the routes are 5.9-5.11 with some newer routes currently being established on the larger part of the Main Crag.

Access: Allen Spur access is fragile and much effort has gone into keeping the climbing open. Be careful, clean, and courteous. Stick to established trails and show respect for the land owners and their property. Leave no trace.

Getting There Suggest change

5 miles south of Livingston on US 89, left on East river road and park at the fishing access. Use the new trail, now much shorter, that follows East river road and goes directly up to the Boundary Crag.

A few things to remember about accessing the crags:

-Park at the Carter's Bridge fishing access, not on East River Road where the trail turns up towards the crag.
-From the Carter Bridge Fishing Access Site, walk east and south down East River Road for 250 yards. Turn east and follow the climbers trail up to the base of Boundry Crag.
-No dogs allowed on this approach. Please obey posted signs.
-Do not trespass onto any other portion of the private property.
-The trail is for foot traffic only. No motorized vehicles or bikes.
-Look for the well marked trails signs and cairns.

The new trail access is shorter than the older trail. Please abide by these guidelines!
