What to Bring

Clothing and Personal Items

Rock climbing is weather dependant.   In Montana, the climbing season
generally runs from May through October. Obviously you should dress
for the season and be prepared for the weather to change without
warning.

To be ready for possible inclement weather, a rain jacket and a warm
pullover are handy.  Pay attention to garment fabrics when looking for
waterproof jackets.  Many are only water resistant, and you will
eventually get soaked in a heavy downpour. A high quality waterproof
jacket will have fully taped seams, a well-designed hood, ventilation
areas that can be unzipped for air flow, and be some type of laminate like
Gore-Tex®.  Bring extra clothes!

Normally though, shorts and/or loose-fitting pants, t-shirts, and sweat
shirts work well for summer outings.  In the Spring and Fall, it is wise to
have polypro tops and bottoms as well as a warm hat and gloves.

Wear comfortable, sturdy shoes (heavy hiking boots are not necessary)
but not sandals.  Climbing areas tend to have plenty of uneven terrain!  
Pick footwear that is well-made for scrambling.
Cameras are also great to have along on a climb to capture the
exceptional scenery.  The rock is hard, and good cameras are expensive
and fragile.  Therefore, we recommend disposable, plastic cameras.  
Rigging them with a small loop of cord allows you to clip them to your
harness so they're accessible.

Feel free to bring your own climbing equipment.  If we consider it unsafe,
we may insist you use ours.  Climbing gear is included for all outings at
no extra charge, including shoes, helmet, harness,  and necessary
hardware.

Bring at least one to two liters of water in a personal, plastic water bottle
or hydration pack.  Due to the energy expended while climbing,
remaining hydrated is very important.  For longer outings, bring a sack
lunch, and remember, energy bars always make excellent climbing
snacks.

Rock climbing creates a healthy and exciting challenge for children and

to observe cliff ecology and helps create wilderness advocates.

Climbing reminds us that with perseverance, even a small child can
