Practice Rock

Practice Rock is a great opportunity to sneak a climb into your day. The cliff offers excellent routes (5.6 to 5.12b, mostly 5.8-5.10b), a short approach, and is one of the closest crags to town. The granite forms long, smooth faces, clean cracks, arêtes, and corners. The routes are short and most of the climbs require gear placements, but some have bolts.

Directions: Take 19th Ave south from Bozeman and turn left on Hyalite Canyon Rd. After approximately a mile, there is lower fishing access parking on the right. The crag is across the road.
