Forecast is calling for low 40s with some clouds at both Devil's Tower and Ten Sleep. As a climber in Bozeman (MT) with a 3 day weekend, I am anxious to touch some rock. Is it possible that these places will be remotely climbable in those conditions, or is it a lost cause?
Any other suggestions? I think that maybe a 6 hour drive is the farthest I am willing to go...

Thanks!

Judging by your ability to float up 5.10 cracks while the rain is coming down in sheets I'm guessing you'll send no matter the conditions.

It's been snowing and blowing from Missoula to Bozeman this past week, though it's been warming--more snow predicted, and I doubt that there would be any rock climbing available; though, there could be a few hit or miss semi-dry spots...

Aki, go ski some corn if it warms up!!! It's winter that's what gyms are for ;^) BTW you can save some gas money and carbon load, that's the reason the seasons are upside down we want fresh vegies and warm granite in winter!!! Ha! end of rant be calm carry on.

Rocky... must be Keenan? Snow isn't quite corn status, Charlie. I like polluting, especially when your son is driving a two stroke sled with me in tow! Why does Guernsey have to be so far?! I think I may just kick it here in Bozeman.
