Description Suggest change

The climbing accessed here is predominantly sport climbing, with a sprinkling of gneiss found in the Canine Cliffs. Mostly single pitch, but there are a couple multipitch routes to be found here.

Getting There Suggest change

Heading south from Four Corners, drive about 5.5 miles south from the canyon entrance, and take a left across the ancient bridge onto Stormcastle Rd. Left at the T gets you to Scorched Earth, right takes you to the rest.

Heading north from the stoplight in Big Sky, drive about 17 miles to the bridge.
