Description 

Sitting between Nez Perce Spire to the west and the Drip Buttress to the East it's easy to pass off Blackfoot Dome as a small low angle dome in a canyon full of beautiful spires. Don't be fooled however, some of Blodgett's best rock can be found on the upper portions of Blackfoot Dome. A reasonable approach, shorter climbs, and straight forward descent make Blackfoot Dome a good option.

Getting There 

Walk up the Blodgett Creek Trail passed The Prow and Drip Buttress. Cross Blodgett creek on one of many logs once you are directly below Blackfoot. Walk up a few hundred feet of scree to the base of the dome.

The Free Lament 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a Montana : Blodgett Canyon : Blackfoot Dome
The Free Lament is perhaps one of the finer short routes in Blodgett. Perfect slab climbing up a very obvious line, and just enough gear to keep it fun. The climb starts on a high grassy ledge at the true base of Blackfoot Dome. Look for a single bolt 70' up. Begin climbing just right of a shallow left facing corner. Climb past a large hollow flake and find gear in a small crack in a left facing corner. Step up and left aiming for the bolt above. Follow the line of least resistance up through a...[more]   Browse More Classics in Montana
