Ross Pass Rocks

Last weekend we went posse-style to the Bridger Mountains for some camping, climbing and bolting at Ross Pass Rocks, also known as RPR. There are approximately 10 routes there, and room for hundreds. The gray and blue-streaked rock is the best limestone I’ve seen in Montana, and is very solid and very sharp.

Pat shuttled all of my stuff up from the truck on his dirt bike. The rocks behind him in the video are on Ross Peak. RPR is below and west of the peak.

We added three new routes at an area Casey dubbed the Community Crag, and top roped an amazing arete in the Corridor. It was my first time using a power drill, and I was pleased to find how much faster it is than a hand drill.

    This is the best sub-20 second video clip I’ve ever seen. When I need a laugh living in obscurity, this is now my go-to clip.
