Here’s a vid of yet another new area in the Tobacco Root Mountains, North Willow Creek. The bouldering is fairly spread out and it won’t be a huge quantity of problems, but the rock is excellent and the setting is very nice (like most areas in MT). I’m guessing there will be about 50+ problems ranging from nearly roadside to 1.5 miles up a good trail. The trail goes on for 5 miles to Hollowtop Lake (I think?) and I’m sure there are tons more boulders all the way up to the Lake, but for now I’m just climbing the problems that are relatively close. It’s pretty close to Bozeman, too! It’s almost exactly one hour from my house to the parking, which is about as good as we can ask for unfortunately.
It looks like it’s going to be hot this weekend, so I think I’m going to get my bouldering fix at N Willow tomorrow evening before the heat comes in then do some recon on Sat & Sun. I’ve got pretty high hopes for one of the areas I’m going to check out and if it’s anywhere near as good as it looks from afar, you’ll be hearing more about it from me in the future. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
