5 pitches of Bitterroot adventure climbing put up over 2 trips. Retreat after pitch 2 will require leaving gear. You can bail from the anchor atop pitch 2 with 2 60M to the base.

Descending from the top is fairly simple..just head North from the summit and gain the obvious gully to the west and follow it back the base of the route.


Right as you come out of the woods just past the wilderness boundary the climbing will be to your North on the Sombrero Buttress. Beta Photo


Fixed anchors atop pitch 1 and 2, otherwise gear may need to be left to bail. The FA party climbed with a single 45M rope and walked off.

Excellent Bitterroot adventure! Thanks for the strong work guys, Topo was accurate and helpful. Pitch 1 i wish would never end. Balancy and fun, excellent finger section. Pitch 2 leads to more fun balancy crack climbing with a fun traverse. Top of Pitch 3 wanders through the only loose band of rock on the whole climb, we navigated slowly and helped clean up a bit. Wear a helmet and don't let the choss spoil your psyche. Pitch 4 and 5 are well worth it. Splitter on P4 is excellent as is the Headwall on P5. Great way to spend the last bits of fall! Oct 30, 2017
