Description

A few small crags along the Madison River, This area is a good winter spot as it stays fairly sunny and fairly warm. The rock quality is on the weak side, the gniess here can be fragile to say the least.

Still under development, this area has a few well traveled crags. Grades here range anywhere from 5.5 to 5.11+

This area is full of rattle snakes and posion ivy, so keep a careful eye when approaching the crags.

Getting There

From Bozeman head west on Highway 84 until you get to the Madison River.

Found a crash pad climbing here the other day. Pretty okay to have a free crash pad but if you can describe the brand, color, and what was also left behind with it I'll get it back to you. Jun 1, 2016
