North of the Border-Awesome Climb to the Left of Gibraltar

Submitted by pony on Sun, 02/25/2007 - 22:15
For those of you familiar with climbs that aren?t to far north of the border, I was up in Cannel Flats this weekend for my son?s league Hockey Tournament (which they won) and went into Gibraltar. It?s in pretty good condition and nobody was on it. Additionally, the climb just around the corner to the left of Gibraltar that is usually a mixed climb to some daggers when it is in, is at the moment, a relatively fat freestanding dead-nuts 5+/6- vertical pillar. I?ve never seen this climb in these condition before! So get on it while the getten?s good! Cheers, Pony

bad rock climbs

The climbs in the canyon were coming in real nice, however somebody got anxious and jumped on the climbs a little too hard. Lets try to let the climbs come in totally so that we don't ruin it for ourself and the many others that use this area. If you need a place to climb, that is close, go to the heights (columbia mtn. trailhead).

Im new to ice climbing and I live in kalispell. I just got gear and was wondering if you guys could help me find out some places to go besides badrock canyon. Im going to Mt. brown this week-end to check it out but if you know of any other cool places to go let me know! Also if any one want to go out on the weekends let me know, I need to get out and learn more. Thanks, Ryan

The Gully(s)

Submitted by Josh Mohler on Thu, 10/19/2006 - 14:22 getting colder, wetter, and did I mention colder? I should be typing a paper on the pedagogical approach to language arts as craft, but all I can think of is the upcoming ice season. Right around this time is when I generally jump the gun and climb/bushwhack for hours and thousands of vertical for some wet ice that I never find or just simply give up on because it?s impossibly far away. I'm talking specifically about Mount Brown. Has anyone been up in the area, seen little blue streaks from the road, or am I about 2-3 weeks ahead of the curve.
