Description 

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 

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 

Doubles 1/8" to 3"
