Really neat to get four pitches of sport in NW Montana; so much so that we made the drive from Kalispell to check it out. Kudos to the developers for finding this area, and doing the work to bolt it out. Points also for excellent directions--only thing I'd add is that it's further than a 1/4th mile up the canyon.

First two pitches felt 5.7-5.8, with the upper two solidly 5.9. A single 70m is fine for the raps, but anything less will short you on two of them.

Pg13 or R depending on your tolerance for VCR to toaster sized loose rocks--feels very alpine. We chucked a bunch off, but expect to have to pick your way carefully on lead. You're insane if you don't bring a helmet. If the rock quality were better, this would be three stars easily.

Many people would consider this overbolted. Rock quality made for a few funky bolt placements (solid bolts, but in strange places relative to the rope line), so bring a few extra draws or alpine draws or simply skip them to keep the rope running well. Aug 24, 2016
