Description [Edit]

A great short multipitch outing in the Bitterroot. Fun climbing, a little adventurous and a beautiful setting. The climb can be done fairly quickly as it is only 3 pitches so it is a nice option to crag the the Lower Crags afterward.

P1. 5.10a/b start up obvious left facing dihedral system directly above a very large boulder. You will know your on the right route if you pass an oddly placed bolt near a crack. Build your own belay at a large ledge.

P2. 5.8 Blocky 5th class and move right into a left leaning flaring flake system and then into 5.8 finger crack to large. Belay at a sloping ledge with two bolt anchor.

P3. 5.10c Great stemming and finger crack on good rock. Climb through stemming corner and past a roof to a tree with webbing for rapping.

Rap with double 60 meter ropes to bolted belay with rap rings. One more double rope rap will get you to the ground.

Location [Edit]

Starts in left facing dihedral just above a very large boulder. An odd lone bolt next to the crack can be seen from the ground on the first pitch.

Protection [Edit]

Doubles 1/8" to 3"

there are several climbs on the spines of rock descending the ridge above glen lakes.happy ending,III 5.7,and search for power III5.10,are the two longest.we found a pin or two on the tops of climbs from unknown ascents.routes were all done hammerless,with no fixed gear,and are all p.g.,but highly reccommended alpine climbs.glen domes have a dozen or so short lines,also all clean.the hall of horrors is one of my favorite areas ever.......
