Description

The Hantavirus Cave ("The Cave") has some of Bozeman's steepest climbing. The rock is similar if not a bit better to the composition of its somewhat close neighbor Scorched Earth. It is host to what has become somewhat of a local test piece "Weapons of Mass Destruction", a compression route just to the right of the cave.

Getting There

Approach take around 5 minutes and follows a well defined trail to up to the cave. From Bozeman drive as if you were going to hike Storm Castle. After turning over the majestic old bridge turn right (a turn left here would take you to Scorched Earth) and drive .8 miles down the road. There are two small pullouts and a well defined trail up to this area.

All new route additions will be part of the cliff known as "Wildecliff" or "Old Squaw" in the D&K guide. To keep things simple, because they are all on the same cliff band, they will be included in this area as the cave is the best landmark on this section of cliff.

As the description states, the rock here is in general of a much higher quality than at Scorched Earth. Not as polished (except for the hard 12s... let's keep it that way!), less loose, and less prone to nasty seepage and silting after rainfall. Aug 4, 2014
