Another excellent Bowling Ball Wall line. Bust a cruxy traverse start. Continue up excellent pumpy climbing past a nut placement and a bolt or two to a horizontal break with a fixed nut. Follow the horizontal left to a stout finish past two more bolts.


Located left of Soft in the Middle and right of Ten Pin (blank-looking sport with the only fixed draws on the wall).


Bolts, small to medium stoppers. Chain anchor on top.

This pitch, established in various pieces over the years, has an interesting history involving some of the Gallatin's best climbers. I feel like I'd be selling Bill Dockins & Tom Kalakay short to discuss it here, so do everyone a favor and buy his book: Bozeman Rock Climbs, 3rd Edition. Excellent historical info for this pitch and the entire Canyon. Aug 7, 2011
