A small chunk of quality stone immediately above (north) of the railroad tracks about 1 mile or so down the tracks (east of) the parking pullout. There are a couple of old-school routes here, and a few new moderates.

Getting There 

If westbound on I-90 between Bozeman and Butte, park in the large pullout on the north side of the interstate about 2 miles before the turn for Homestake Lake. This is the pullout/parking for all areas on Homestake Pass from Split Pinnacle to Hot Wings/Killer Whale.
Hike east down the tracks (abandoned) for almost a mile, until the rock is obvious just above the tracks on the left (north) side.

Climbing Season

For the All Locations area.

Weather station 4.4 miles from here
