Great climb marred by poor top out. Start in a shallow left facing corner, pull a mini-roof, then move up the splitter to easier ground. The top goes free, but the rock is bad, and the gear is worse. Still; if purple camalots (rattly fingers) are your thing (maybe you should see someone about this?) you must climb this route. More accurately the Purple Index Finger Eater- but that doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.


You can approach this from top (best) or bottom, both are completely within the city park. Located at 45.80786,-108.69267


Camalots .75 to .4 mostly .5 (purple). Trad gear is excellent until the choss on top. Consider lowering off your last good cam, or hanging a second rope down from the top anchor. The anchors are back form the edge so you need to get a little creative making a top rope anchor (long slings or second rope).

Whoops! forgot to post co-ordinates on this one! Anyway it's been updated. From Big Eagle Feather it's about 2000 ft Southwest as the crow flies. Type the co-ordinates in google maps & you should be able to find it. If all else fails, give me a text & I'll walk you over there 406 794-4362. Nov 20, 2013
