Description 

In the Climber's Guide to Montana, Caffrey describes this range thus: "A compact plateau with concentrated peaks of the same general elevation. Loose fractured rock from top to bottom. Elevation span 6400'."

Fairly off-the-beaten-path area, with old, dark metamorphic rock.

A number of high, craggy peaks to explore with old remnants of mining exploration.

Located southeast of Butte. East of Twin Bridges, west of Norris, north of Virginia City, and bounded on the north by the Jefferson River and I-90.

Getting There 

Typical approach into the area is up Mill Creek Road out of Sheridan.

Legacy 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  Montana : Tobacco Root Mountains : Leggat Spire
Legacy is a fantastic moderate route with three pitches of awesome ridge climbing. With a short (if bushwhacky approach) it is a very accessible alpine route. We missed the crux 5.7 pitch the guidebook describes, opting instead for the line of least resistance. I’ll describe our variation, although I would bet the actual route has better climbing.P1: Head up easy cracks in the corner for about 30′, until it is possible to start traversing to the left.
