Bozeman Rock Climbs

Bill Dockins & Tom Kalakay / High Gravity Press, 2009

Written by two veteran Bozeman climbers, Bozeman Rock Climbs is the only comprehensive guide to crags in the Bozeman area. Carefully researched, accurate, and easy to follow, the 3rd Edition is a greatly expanded version of guides first published in 1987 and again in 1995. Illustrated with scores of full-page photos, topos, and maps, the guide covers Gallatin Canyon limestone and gneiss, Hyalite Canyon, Bear Canyon, Chestnut Mountain, the Madison River area, the Bridger Range and the Big Sky Area, and it includes many crags not described anywhere else. In addition to the route descriptions and first ascent information, the 3rd Edition's chapters on the area's climbing history and geology and a foreword by H.J. Schmidt lend a depth, richness, and humor rarely found in run-of-the-mill climbing guidebooks, says the Southern Montana Climbers Alliance.
