Access Issue: Private Property 1st half mile Details
Stick to the trail for the first half mile, and use approach trails to get up to the crags
Granite sport and trad climbing, mostly single pitch but some multipitch too. Routes range from 5.6 to 5.13, and everything from crack climbing to steep roofs.This is the closest crag to Missoula and has very short approaches, nothing over 15 mins. The south side of the canyon is shady in the summer, the north side can get very hot. Something climbable in most seasons.
Take highway 93 south out of Missoula for about 25. Just before entering Stevensville take a right on Kootenai creek road. Follow this for a few miles to the trailhead parking lot. The main trail is located on the north side of the canyon. Most crags are on the north side, except outermost limits and booty buttress. Find the trails heading up from the main trail to get to the climbs.
