It’s June, which means it’s time to dust off your climbing shoes, head to the crag, and enjoy rock climbing in our beautiful Montana sunshine! (or snow, depending on the day). We’ve kicked off our summer season with some great days of climbing so far – last week we took a crew of 8 students from Belgrade Middle School up the Gallatin Tower, a classic 3-pitch climb in Gallatin Canyon. In another week, we’ll be taking students from the VISIONS Service Adventures program for two days of rock climbing at Allenspur, in the Paradise Valley. All in all, it’s been a great start to our 2021 season and we’re looking forward to many more days of good climbing!
While MAG slowed down during our spring “off-season,” our guides took advantage of the extra time to do some trips of their own! Guides Sam Hennessey and Ty Guarino spent the spring guiding on Denali, and Aki Joy and Anju Samuelson took advantage of their time off to do some big wall climbing in Yosemite National Park. Way to go, guides!
Moving forward, we’re looking forward to more great rock climbing, several expeditions to climb Gannett Peak in Wyoming, and some fun backpacking routes through Yellowstone National Park. We’re also excited to update our blog periodically with fun tips/tricks about climbing, skiing, and backpacking, as well as guide spotlights and trip reports. Stay tuned!
