Description

Barretts is a relatively small crag, with around a dozen or so routes, mostly single pitch and a couple up to three pitches. The climbing is on igneous, volcanic rock, more specifically andesite.

Lower elevation, riverside, sunny west facing, this crag is a good cool weather destination and bakes in mid-summer heat. Fall and spring are prime time. Sunny winter days in the afternoon would also be doable.

Routes range from the classic pinnacle standard route at 5.6 to 5.10 (or thereabouts). Some well bolted, some requiring supplemental gear, and most single pitch routes have rappel anchors.

There is some loose rock so take care.

Barretts Park Campground is also located here, with, gasp, free camping. There are restrooms, drinking water, nicely maintained grassy picnic grounds and tent and trailer sites. 14 day limit on camping. Nice camping, but, suffers a bit from being very close to I-15.
Access crosses private bridge and land. Details

Getting There

Barretts is located about 8 miles southwest of Dillon on I-15. The access is a marked I-15 exit both north and southbound. The crag sits directly across the Beaverhead River from the rest area/campground. Park in the rest area, cross the bridge, and follow the river back downstream towards the crag. There is a trail leading through the brush directly to the crag.
