The Genesis area is deservedly popular with relatively short approaches, reliable ice, and a wide selection of difficulties, including many moderates.

Getting There 

From the Hyalite Creek/Peak aka Grotto Falls Trailhead parking lot, walk back east and cross the road. A roughly 10-15 minute hike on a well-traveled trail brings you to the base of the Genesis I wall. Most of the routes will be described from here.

The Soprano WI2  Montana : Hyalite Canyon : Genesis Area
This is an enjoyable climb but by no means is this a classic. This route consists of two main steps of ice which make this route a great opportunity to practice multipitch climbing or a first lead. The second step is much wider than the first and has multiple options for climbing. Most likely you will be the only party on this route but when Genesis area is busy this is a nice alternative. Keep in mind that the approach gully and gully above the climb are avalanche paths....[more]   Browse More Classics in Montana
