Montana TRIP REPORTS



This page provides links to my trip reports in Montana. I did a bike trip in Glacier National Park in 2011, but it wasn't until 2018 that I climbed in Montana. My 2018 climbing trip was originally just a 4-day trip to Blodgett Canyon, but I had so much fun that the trip evolved into a 2-week effort to climb as many classic routes in Montana as I could. This 2018 trip opened my eyes up to the climbing possibilities in Montana and I will be sure to do more climbing in Montana in the future.
