Rock Climb

The Billings Rimrocks(The Rims), the often neglected and unjustly overlooked climbing mecca of eastern Montana. The most popular climbing area is above the Gregory Hills subdivision. There are some great cracks and some great although sometimes fragile face climbs. Toproping is the norm because of the aforementioned rock quality although cracks usually take good medium to large sized pro. There are a few bolted routes but choose your poison. Most routes have easily accessable bolt or natural anchors. A great local winter climbing destination but avoid it during the heat of the summer after 10:00am! Also be aware of the very high rockfall potential and belay and hang out well away from the base of the climbs and as always pack out all trash including cigarette butts and tape.

Along with rock climbing the Rimrocks have extensive hiking trails. It is an opportunity to experience nature in a populated area.

New Collection


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many trail, parks, and other locations are closed. Those temporary closures may not be reflected on this website. The locations that are open may be very populated and make it difficult to practice social distancing. Please respect all closures and government and CDC orders and recommendations. Maybe now would be a great time to put together a bucket list or an after this ends list. We're all in this together. Stay cautious and stay healthy.

I will be respectful
