4 out of 5 stars Long...

"Rock Climbs of Southwest Montana" says this is a 5.8. Sure, but it is a 30 meter route of continuous 5.8 moves, and for that i say it is a 5.9.

4 out of 5 stars blood and bolts

fun climb. will max out a 60 M rope, form a TR the ends touch the ground by only a foot or so. Its a bit crumbly below the first bolt but gets better the higher up you go. crux is a crack that is great at giving bloody knuckles. this rout is between "keep it under 100" and "look ma no hands" there are another routs between there as well But I do not know the names.
