Rock climbers choose limestone, gneiss, or granite; sport or trad; boulder or roped up. Ice climbers revel in the icefall-laden Hyalite Canyon. And alpine climbers and mountaineers have hundreds of peaks to tackle, of varying degrees of difficulty, ranging from easy 5.6 to gnarly 5.13 climbs. Whatever your climbing predilection, it's all right here, within an hour of Bozeman.
