MAST – Rock climbing, Stone Hills, MT, USA

2001 Oct 8-12

Stone Hills outside Eureka, Montana United States of America that is where we headed with our vans for 5days doing “Rock Climbing I”

Stone-Hill is regarded as a Mecca for rock climbers regionally / nationally and perhaps even internationally. The roadside climbing high above Lake KooCanUsa (KOOteney Valley runnin between CANada and USA) is fun, scenic, sunny & warm, and the rock is great. The are probably 200-300 routes there by now. Mellow camping (free) is to be had at the forest service campground (camp-32) about 10 miles from the crags. Eureka, not too far away have grocerystore and hotel and resturants if people don’t want to create their own dishes in the woods.

This was for many of us our first rock climbing ever, and since we didn’t know anything, we were brought to mellow climbs the first day. I climbed half a dozen routes a day ranging from 5.7 to 5.10b. The photo is a 5.8 on Lizard Slab.
