Getting There

Follow East Rosebud Creek road, you will be on gravel, then it will become paved, then gravel again, and you will pass over a bridge. continue for maybe half a mile until you see the obvious sloping wall rising off the right side of the road. Bush-wack up to the base. Remember, everything is twice as big, and twice as far away than it looks in the Bearooths.

The route

Start off by climbing up to the very obvious ledge at the bottom of the ramp. Start up the obvious crack, climbing through a small, 2 and a half foot roof up to a small belay ledge ledge. You can rap a sling around the big rock at the belay ledge. 1st pitch- about 35 meters. Then climb through a small dihedral up to a very, very obvious ledge. 2nd pitch- about 30 meters. Traverse 15 feet climber's left of belay ledge to the obvious crack. Follow this all the way to the ledge with the two pine trees. (easiest pitch) third pitch- 55-60 meters. Then, climb up and over the top tree and continue up crack, through a dihedral to the base of the obvious steep section. the best belay ledge here is on the far left side of the ramp. 4th pitch-45-50 meters. Then traverse right from the belay ledge to the base of a large dihedral. climb to the top of the dihedral, then traverse left, out onto the arete. Be sure to turn around and look down. great view! Continue to top. 5th pitch- 50-55 meters ( hardest pitch.)
