Rimrocks, Steepworld and the Montana Cancan

We started off the weekend with an early start to Billings for the Montana Bouldering Championships.  But to fully justify the trip we decided a nice 3 hour warm-up at Zimmerman Park was in order.  Isaac showed us around his old stomping ground.  It may not be the MT sandstone mecca we all dream of, but if I lived in Billings I would head up there a lot.

Afterwards we headed to the comp at Steepworld, which was a lot of fun, but there were a few things that could have made it a little better – most notably, tighten down the holds!  I had five holds spin on me and I know there were a lot of others.  There was even a spinner in finals which is about the worst possible thing that can happen.  We all climbed well, with Ho doing great in finals against a stacked field of young guns.

Sunday, everybody rallied out to for a semi-lazy day at Whiskey.  I didn’t take as many photos as I should have, but I got a few at our last stop of the day – Montana Cancan, a sweet Moon kick dyno that I put up a little while ago.

  1. Oh boy, the Billings sandstone just so happens to be my stomping grounds (stomping choss) as well. Diamond X and Arvin are my favorite areas, but glad to see a bit of love for the east side any way. Out this weekend?
