Description

As Beaver Creek flows from the crest of the Big Belts to the Missouri River, it cuts through many outcrops of limestone creating some of the areas best and most extensive sport crags. Over 200 pitches can be found across the length of the canyon with the vast majority in the upper reaches near the Refrigerator Canyon trailhead. Rock quality ranges from typical Big Belt choss to some of the best limestone this region has to offer. The Second edition of Central Montana Rock has good beta, but is rapidly becoming dated due to the ongoing development of crags in the area. Beaver creek has an incredible quantity of undeveloped limestone. There are multipitch classics on the eye of the needle as well as many single pitch routes. Newer routes can be found in the refrigerator canyon area which is a slot canyon carved by a a tributary to Beaver creek.

Getting There

From Helena or Canyon Ferry, head to York. At the York Bar turn left (north) and drive to Nelson. Turn right and continue up Beaver creek for Refrigerator Canyon, the Eye of the Needle and Pike Creek or left for the lower crags. Dispersed camping is found throughout the canyon.
