For those considering taking up the sharp end at Great Falls:

"The rock is partially-metamorphosed schist composed of granite and quartz crystals. While the rock is stable, it is not recomended for trad climbing as protection will slip or break out."

Edit: Source of quote is the little orange-covered Great Falls guidebook.
