Description

A sub-set of the Rocky Mountains, the Bridge Range runs north to south between Bozeman and Livingston and is separated from the Gallatin Range to the south by Bozeman Pass.

Primarily used as a skiing, biking, and hiking area, Bridger Pass has more recently been noted as a half-way decent climbing area. With about 50 miles of rock to climb, this area has a just about everything. Quality ranges from extremely good to extremely poor.
With the exception of The "M" approach time varies and you should expect at least one to three hours for Ross Peak and Ainger Lake.

Most climbing in the Bridger Range is an all day affair, so pack carefully and come prepared. Expect a full day and bring enough clothes for hot, cold, or wet weather.
