Description 

This is an area in progress, and should be considered to include anything within a quarter mile of Hwy 191 south of the 35MPH bridge and extending down to a couple miles south of the Greek Creek Campground.
BETA REQUESTED ON ANY CLIMBS IN THIS AREA

There are multiple undeveloped and lightly developed crags in the area, many scattered, and many with terrible or suspect rock quality compared to the extensive trad climbing in the more northern part of the canyon. The rock tends to be the same variety as the gneisses and quartzites in the northern sector, with the lighter quartzite variety showing up more frequently. There is potential here for quite a bit of climbing and new development for those willing to hop around between crags.

Access issues are unclear for many crags but the vast majority of land off of the highway is Gallatin National Forest land and therefore free to climb, though make sure to contact the local USFS before establishing any new routes.

This area encompasses the recently-added "Sagebrush Point Boulders".

Getting There 

Drive south on Hwy 191 from Bozeman and Four Corners. After driving through the developed part of the climbing and crossing the 35MPH bridge and Lava Lake trailhead, start looking for rocks! The Roadside Crag is located on the first left-hand pullout after the bridge travelling south.
