Description

Past Langohr Campground, 8.0 miles from the start of the Hyalite Canyon road, is a fin of limestone extending out level with the road down into Hyalite Creek. Routes had been climbed on the lower angle north face of the Fin, where piton(s) can still be found. The blank overhanging south face wasn't developed until summer 2011 by Frank Dusl, Jeff Ho, Joe Manlove, and Leigh Spokas. Now the small area boasts a high density of hard short sport climbs. This area is a great summer hang, the wall receives shade from 3pm on, and the river keeps the temps quite moderate. Though keep an eye out for the locals, the monsters route theme was developed after several close encounters with moose by the route developers.

This area also happens to be quite popular for non-climbers checking out the top of the fin, swimming in the river, and most importantly fishing. Please be courteous to other visitors, and be conscientious that there may be people above you while you are climbing.

Getting There

Once on hyalite canyon road drive until you get to Langohr Campground, keep going uphill towards the resevoir, just after you crest the hill and start going down look for the first paved pullout on the left. If there isn't a fin of limestone extending from the south end of the pullout you have the wrong one.
