Domino

FA: unknown
Montana > Northwest Region > Mulkey Gulch > Bottleneck
Access Issue: Private Property Details

Description

The crux is halfway after the second bolt.
I loved this route. It has a lot of variety for such a short climb. You will have crimps, jugs(look out for bees in some of the jugs.),pinches and even some cracks to work with on Madison limestone.
This was my second lead climb ever and my favorite climb to date.

Location

This climb is on the right side of the road , the belayer will almost be standing in the road (no worries, I've never seen another car out on that gravel road) at the "bottleneck" where cliffs on both sides of the road meet with just enough room for your car to drive through.
Ironically, though this climb is named "domino" the face of this climb looks exactly like a bottle with an obvious bottleneck shape at the top.

This climb is sport to the top and rappel down.

Protection
