Description 

This wall is strong, tall and lonesome. Far above the reaches of such petty climbing as Blackline or Fish Face, Northern Exposure hangs it out proud above the top of Skyline. North facing even the hottest days inspire a chill.

Getting There 

Hike up the new switchbacks over the top of Skyline. One could also toil up the old gully decent, but that would be stupid. Takes between 0:45 and 1:15 depending on how shrimpy of sport-climber legs you have.

Both FAers decided this was one bizarre route. Amazing unique movement makes up the entirety of this schizophrenic route...Was the bolter drunk when thinking this was a line? Either way, consensus was that this microcrimping slab nightmare is a worthwhile addition and of far better quality than the rotten 5.10 up higher on the cliff....[more]   Browse More Classics in Montana
