Description

Beehive Mountain is located in the southern portion of the Spanish peaks Wilderness Area of the Gallatin National forest, a little over an hour south of Bozeman, and just North of Big Sky Ski Resort. It is a pristine Alpine environment but has one of the shortest approaches in the state for such climbing. There are quite a few routes on the southeast face, all multipitch trad routes from 5.6-5.11 on high quality granite gneiss.
Descent can be done in either of the two couloirs that flank the southeast face. There are rappel slings at both, which make things faster, but descent is possible without a rope. Consider backing up the slings with your own.

Getting There

From Bozeman take 191 south toward Big Sky. Turn west at the Big Sky Road and go into the Mountain Village(9.5 miles). Continue past the Village for another 1.5 miles and turn right on Beehive Basin Road, which is well marked. Follow signs for the trailhead, another 1.8 miles. It is a 4 mile hike to the basin, which provides nice camping(Wilderness) and another 1.5 miles to the summit.
