Volume 2 in the Big Sky Rock series of Montana climbing guides. The serene climbing areas along the Rocky Mountain Front, the Elk Horn and Big Belt Mountains of Montana are home to everything from convenient practice areas to some of the most challenging free climbs in the state - many described here for the first time. Written by one of the area's leading explorers, this guide covers over 350 quality climbs on dozens of roadside sport crags, lonely canyons, textured granite spires of the Boulder Batholith, and the multi-pitch wonder of Blackleaf Canyon near the Bob Marshall Wilderness.
