Butte Bouldering Bash Video

Last year, at the 2nd Annual Butte Bouldering Bash, Pete Tapley was kind enough to come out a document the festivities.

With the 3rd Annual Butte Bouldering Bash being announced, we find it fitting to release some psych to get you pumped up for the upcoming bash!  October 13th - Mark those calendars!

Thanks again to our sponsors, Pete, the participants, and all the volunteers. Our community coming together for great events like this make Montana a special place to be.

DWS Adventure

I received an interesting call from our buddy Steve regarding DWS potential in Montana...a few weeks later we thought we'd join him out on the water for a day of exploring and some adventurous deep water soloing...

Exploring some not so confidence inspiring rock
Best line of the day and most solid. There are actually a few bolts running up the arete to the left...

Odenbeck exploring higher up

According to Patrick, the rock turns a bit loose up there in the brown...his current high point. w00t!

While the rock is pretty questionable in places, there are a handful of potential lines out there it seems, perhaps more with a bit of cleaning.  A fun day to be sure, and a nice change of pace. Thanks again Steve!

3rd Annual Butte Bouldering Bash

Hello all,

It is nearing that time of year again... Time to Bash!!!  Or at least start thinking about it. Things are gonna be different this year so we thought we would start leaking the details.

The Butte Bouldering Bash is an outdoor bouldering competition and social event in the Boulder Batholith formation outside of Butte, Montana.  Here is a link to last year's Bash wrap up

The event will be held at a new zone The Trailer Boulders.  This is an area that has been in development for the past couple years and has a wide variety of excellent problems from V0-V10.  We thought that it was time to unveil it to the masses.  We are also planning on releasing a guidebook for the area at the comp as well.  Though we will not have the lodge this year, this area has ample camping, better parking etc., etc., etc.

The Bash will be a little later this year to hopefully escape the heat.  We are setting the date for Saturday, October 13th so mark your calendars!

Why not?  Besides the comp there will be, a prize raffle with prizes from our sponsors, shoe demos, food, music and of course beer.  The day after the event we will also be organizing a clean up for the camping and bouldering areas.

Stay tuned for more details...
