Description

Leggat Spire is the southeast spur of Leggat Mountain. The interesting aspect to climbers is the northeast side, which has steep rock ranging from north to east facing.

Rock quality can range from pretty good to loose and poor. Care must be taken with climbing in this location as its fairly remote although the approach is rather short by Montana backcountry standards.

Some climbing information on this area in RB's "Alpine Ice and Rock Guide" especially the "Legacy" route (grade II 5.7) on the north face of the spire.

The cirque below the spire would most likely hold snow until later in the summer climbing season after a healthy winter (and spring).

Getting There

Take the Mill Creek Road from Sheridan to Branham Campground and Lakes. As you get near the lakes, the spire will be the big obvious face to the left (west).

A fairly easy and short approach through sparse timber on the far side of Branham Lakes to the west for around a mile.

Hey Ya'll. My friend Drew and I climbed Legacy yesterday (8/12/17) and I dropped my camera off the first big belay ledge directly above the big obvious overhang referenced in Ron Brunkhorst's route description. Not sure if it survived or not, but if anyone happens to come across it, there's a six pack in it for them. -Taylor (507-340-7409, tvanr507@gmail.com) Aug 13, 2017
