About Humbug Spires:

Off of the interstate between Butte and Dillon. About 4 miles up the Moose Creek drainage, there are countless spires ranging from 50 to over 500 feet. The most popular is The Wedge, hosting a wide variety of routes. Predominantly traditional, with a few bolted slab lines.

Directions: Drive to Exit 99 on I-15, about 30 miles south of Butte. Follow Moose Creek Road (signed nicely) for 3.5 miles till you reach an outhouse and trail head. The Spires are all along the trail, with The Wedge being at the end of the trail, about 4 miles in.
