About Mill Creek Canyon:

Presently, 18 crags have seen route development and activity--ranging from 5.7 trad lines to 5.13 desperate clip-ups. The rock is 50 million year-old granite that has been exposed though Absaroka weathering and uplift, providing crisp splitter-cracks and pristine faces. 90% of the area is road-side and requires less than a 10-minute approach--and the nearby creek adds the comfort of chilled beverages throughout the day.Approximately 77 routes on 18 crags/ buttresses have been red-pointed and completed for future parties to experience, with an additional 4 top-rope walls utilizing 10 separate anchors. Climbing is on U.S. Forest Service land and has no restrictions except for a seasonal gate closure (Jan. 1-May 1) 3 miles downstream--generally the season is best May through October.
