Kalispell Montana Rock and Ice Site

Earlier this year we had an entry in the Links sidebar, bottom right of this page, for a Kalispell climbing blog. At the first of June, the blog part of that went away as we changed the hyperlink to take you to a Meetup site instead. This was the result of a message we received from Chris, up in Kalispell, who is the group's main contact.

We've been slow in announcing this change, but wanted to give everyone a heads-up that you can connect with Kalispell and other area climbers by signing up at the well-established and joining the group Montana Rock and Ice. Most of us are aware of Koocanusa's Stone Hill climbing, but the Kalispell group has a lot of other lesser-known crags worth checking out. Tim Karst swung by one a couple of months ago and reported it looked like some good climbing in a nice forested setting. The meetup page is a great starting place to get the beta on their local areas.

From the Montana Rock and Ice meetup's page,
This meetup is for all climbers, both rock and ice, and both newbies and experienced. We love to climb and love to share our experiences. We are located in Kalispell and we take trips all over Montana and Canada and we also organize trips to destinations including Red Rocks, Joshua Tree, Smith Rock, City of Rocks and more ....

This is a meeting place for those with an interest or passion for climbing: trad, sport, boulders, indoors and outdoors!

If you love to climb, join and say hello!
