Lower Nunnery

Montana > Southwest Region > Gallatin Canyon > W Side > Nunnery

Description

Lower bouldering area pretty close to the road. Bring many pads, as some boulders are large with precarious landings.
Here's some video:

Getting There

From Bozeman, park on the east side of the road (left) at large obvious turnout after the Cube area turnoff. Cross the street and locate faint climber's trail slightly south of parking. Follow trail heading north under the power lines. This will lead you in the the direction of the first boulder (Rubbernecker) which will be easy to locate. Follow faint trail system uphill towards main cluster, and some are in the talus field as well.

[Hide Comment] Updated approach: Stay low on main trail for Rubbernecker and the lower boulders. For the main nunnery boulders take a left at the small stumps/brush pile and follow the cairns that will lead you up towards "If It Bleeds". Sep 28, 2019
