Great (for Billings) trad lead. Protects well with .5 to 2 camalots (maybe 2 each) the crack has nice bumps in it so pink & red tri-cams work good if you don't have a lot of cams, but; you will need a #2 camalot at the bottom for a directional. Towards the top there is a perfect slot for a #12 BD stopper. There is a flake in the crack a third of the way up you should avoid placing gear on, but it is solid enough to climb on.
Located @ 45.803638,-108.589342 if you don't have a GPS type those coordinates into the search bar of google maps page, switch to satellite view. The pointer will then be on a fairly large pine tree that sits on top of the route. Speaking of trees, clip a draw into one of the chains & top out without using the tree. Good fun & makes the route at least a solid nine.
