Description 

The Lower Crags sit above the cluster of boulders about 2 miles from the Sweathouse Creek Trailhead. Most of these climbs are sport climbs but a few good trad climbs are found here too all are single pitch and a 60 meter rope is fine.

Getting There 

Hike 2 miles up canyon from TH until you reach an obvious cluster of very large boulders. The climbs will be found on the north side of the canyon above the boulders. Once you reach the beginning of the clustered big boulders, hike up uneven talus for less than a quarter mile and you will have found this crag.

Climbing Season

Rock Climbing Photo: What a fun roof!

Schist Roof 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  Montana : Sweathouse Creek Crags : Lower Crags
Really unique route! This climbs the massive roof through the obvious weakness. Cool holds, to a wild crux through the roof then through the final bulge. It is highly recommended to use a long draw in the second to last bolt to reduce rope drag. Also,it is recommended to rappel the from the anchor to avoid lowering over an edge....[more]   Browse More Classics in Montana

I have climbed at this crag now a couple of times, and it is a shame that these routes were not cleaned better when developed. All of the climbs have fun and thoughtful movement, but in general all suffer from kitty litter granite, loose blocks, dirt and vegetation. With some cleaning they would all be great routes.

Hey! Glad you have gotten out climb those routes. They definitely suffer from what you have described. I have logged in a pretty absurd amount of time putting the routes in and getting them to what they are now. Any time and work you put into them is greatly appreciated!
