Description

Although the spectacular areas in upper Beaver Creek have have recieved more attention, the lower section of the drainage has a few areas of solid grey limestone tucked in among the choss. Currently one crag has been partially developed, and the area has much potential for steep hard routes, provided the developer digs deep enough...

Getting There

Drive time is around 1 hr from central Helena. From Helena, drive north east to York. At the York Bar turn left to Nelson, the cribbage capitol of the world. At Nelson turn left and head down Beaver Creek toward the Missouri River. Pass the Hunter’s Gulch trailhead, and a few houses. After this this the road narrows and passes close to some chossy cliffs. Continue until the valley opens up and the cliffs leave the road than look for the lowest tier of good quality gray rock on the opposite side of the creek across from a large natural arch. The crag will be ~3.75 miles after Nelson. If you reach the turn off to American Bar, you missed the crag. If no one is at the campsite beyond the crag, park there and use the rocks in the creek to cross with dry feet (46.7915, -111.8733). If the campsite is occupied park at the power pole directly below the crag and wade the shallow creek (46.7917, -111.8708).
