Description

The Cube provides something that the Canyon lacks for the most part- good, overhanging, sustained power-endurance climbing. The rock is very high quality, more reminiscent of stuff on the eastside than the nearby Bowling Ball Wall. The difficult approach (and ratings) help to keep crowds at a minimum. If you're a Bozeman local and someone else is climbing here when you show up, you probably know them. To make a good thing even better, the crag gets afternoon shade! Throw some fixed draws on most routes into the mix and you've got a classic Bozone sport crag.

Getting There

Either approach directly from a pullout south of the Gallatin Tower parking, or park as for the Gallatin Tower and head up this feature's approach trail. Then head south and uphill from a faint trail extending from the last switchback before reaching the base of Gallatin Tower. Some loose ascending through a sandy gully will bring you to the base of the Cube in a few minutes. I'd recommend the latter approach if only so you can get a warmup on the Bowling Ball Wall before getting savagely pumped on the Cube (which has a distinct shortage of anything easier than 12a).
