Description 

A beautiful canyon in close proximity to Bozeman featuring limestone routes.

Getting There 

To reach the trail head, follow 7th St. until it turns into Frontage Rd. Turn right on Springhill Rd. After the golf course, take a right on Sypes Canyon Rd. Follow this for 1.4 miles, then left on Summer Cutoff Rd. Go until the T intersection (Saddle Mountain Rd.) and then turn right. At the next T intersection, turn left. Continue following the gravel road, making a right hand turn to avoid private drives. Eventually, the road dead ends at the parking lot for the trail head.

Honey Bee Ridge climbs from south to north on the ridge that forms Evening Rock, mostly on the east side of the formation. It is an adventurous route, with lots and lots of loose rock, some runouts, and interesting route finding. It would be 4 stars if not for junk rock. The positioning and exposure are fantastic!Most of the climbing on Honey Bee is 4th to low 5th class, but there are a few sections of "real" rock climbing.
