BETA PHOTO: Driving route to get to main crags


A windy, open area with quite a few crags suitable for rock climbing all-year-round. Bouldering, trad, and sport routes abound in the Revenue Flats area situated west of Norris, Montana. Find gorgeous views of the Tobacco Root Mountains but be prepared to share your space with ATVs and shooters.

Getting There 

From Bozeman, MT head west on Hwy 191 to Four Corners. Drive straight ahead as the road turns into Hwy 84 toward Norris, MT. At Norris continue straight ahead again onto the dirt Sterling Rd. At this point directions become difficult as dirt roads stray off in multiple directions. For an online map of these directions visit:

Strongtium 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  Montana : Revenue Flats : The Aquarium
Belay from the obvious brush clearing in the boulder field. Climb up onto the ledge and traverse left over balancey moves to the crack. Smearing and lie-backing mainly, with a few feet out left. Crack is fat fingers down low, small hands up top. Plug some gear under the roof, and move up and over the roof (crux). Don't get stuck trying to place pro in the awkward stance above the roof. Keep moving. The pro thins out from roof to anchors.Super fun, albeit short, route!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Montana

Watch out for hicks who set off homemade bombs (wish I were kidding) shoot at the rocks that you are on for fun (again wish I were kidding). Find the fishbowl for a great campsite. Looks like a big dome and you crawl up into the middle which sinks about 40 feet.
