The line roughly follows the prominent black stain on the north west face. From the head of the gully, scramble 25' up to ledge at base of black stain (unprotected 5.3). Pitch 1 (5.8) - Ascend steep face graced with large, crystal-lined pockets to a large ledge; 7 bolts; 150'; chain anchor. Pitch 2 (5.10-) - Move left 25' and follow right-slanting bolt line up steep face that ends with an easy slab. (may want gear on slab, especially if wet) Descent: Double rope rappel from any of the chain anchors. In theory a 70 meter rope will make the rappel as well, however this has not been personally proven yet.

finally got to the frog rock after being in Bozeman for 3 years. Missed the avalanch gully first time in approach, had to go around and scramble a bit. First pitch was good. Faced difficulty in second one.. two bolts down the anchor. but after,- no problem. The second pitch is awesome! A bit noisy due to interstate and trains thus hard to communicate between buddies all along the route. Cellular phones(good coverage) or Walkie-talkies are recommended for those with soft voices/ throat troubles/ international accents ( :) ).
