Published posthumously, Butte's Climbing Guide is a tribute to the author, the Butte native and Montana climbing legend Dwight Bishop. This is the definitive guide to the rock climbing and bouldering of the famous and unique "Boulder Batholith."
Spread out across the Continental Divide, the areas covered offer a wealth of climbing opportunities with everything from roadside crags, to the best back country spires in the state, to vast and largely untapped bouldering fields.
Long popular with locals from Butte, Missoula, Bozeman and Helena, the Boulder Batholith is scattered near the arteries of Interstate 90 and Interstate 15; offering an easily accessible "stop-over" for road-tripping climbers from Alberta or from across the US headed south to the desert, north to Canada, east to Devil's Tower, or west to the Cascades.

Butte's Climbing Guide, 3rd edition features "Whiskey Gulch Bouldering" by Alek Tkach. Long the secret haunt of the hard core Bozeman and Missoula bouldering set, Whiskey has developed into one of America's premier bouldering venues, featuring multiple problems off all grades up to V11 including boulders with short sandy landings to the nastiest highballs you can imagine.
