Description

The Hantavirus Cave ("The Cave") has some of Bozeman's steepest climbing and a great concentration of nearly 30 routes from 5.10b-5.13. The rock is similar if not a bit better to the composition of its nearby and more-popular 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.
