Tooling Around in Bozeman

To escape the horrible inversion Missoula was experiencing last week, I headed for Bozeman to hang with friends and ice climb in the sun. I wasn't motivated to try anything big so I thought a day of cragging would be nice. Ben Brunsvold and I headed to the Bingo Cave for an entertaining day of dry tooling. We had no idea what the ratings were, but because the routes had fixed draws, why not try.

We each gave a route a few goes and got totally worked. It was great fun though and something to strive for. After that we chucked a quick lap on the Good looking One so we could actually swing our tools.

All in all it was a fun day playing around in the sun.

When sport climbing, think like a sport climber....stick clip it
