Explorarama!

Hello all,

I have been doing a lot of exploring as of lately and have found some really nice stuff.  I thought it would be worthwhile to share some of these new discoveries.  So here is a quick peek at some of the blocks that I stumbled upon in the last couple weeks while rambling about.  These photos are some excerpts from two different areas.  One is right off the road the other is not.  I do not normally show pictures of just stone but I thought I would make an exception since most of these are unclimbed.

Excellent stone... and way harder than it looks

Fun block with some interesting problems

Super patinas

An amazing Dolmen.  Where are the Indigenous Elders when you need them? For more information on this subject and a very entertaining read visit  http://www.galacticfacets.com/dolmens-in-montana.html



Not even sure what to call this thing.  bomber parallel cracks and about 15' deep
A beautiful seam and tall about 20' at the lip
20' roof crack hands to tips with a backbreaker block any takers?

L8ers,
Patrick

I cant believe you can just stroll about and find quality rocks like that.There is so much climbing in your country.Thats a whole area you have there.Nice one.Great bouldering.

Yeah believe me I paid my dues in CO. Where many gems have already been plucked. The Batholith is a special place right now. I can pretty much guarantee an FA for anyone at any level if they go out with me- even for a couple hours.
