Featuring over 300 routes up to 600 feet and hundreds of boulder problems up to V11, "Butte's Climbing Guide" is the only complete guide to one of Montana's premier and most historic climbing areas. Known geologically as the Boulder Batholith, this extensive area along the Continental Divide between Butte and Whitehall, MT offers more granite climbing than anywhere in the Northern Rockies. A world class destination unto itself, the Boulder Batholith is also the perfect "stop-over" for traveling climbers on the long ride to and from the desert southwest, the Canadian Rockies, the Cascades or the Black Hills.

Published posthumously; this edition is a tribute to the author Dwight R. Bishop, a Butte native, world-class athlete and Montana climbing legend. Dwight loved to climb, and train, as much as his time and health would allow. An avid ice climber and alpinist, Dwight was the first American to climb the "big three" north faces of Europe - the Eiger, Matterhorn and Grand Jorasses. He was the consummate "climber's climber."
