Southwest Montana holds a wealth of access to all varieties of climbing. From the endless sea of boulders of the Boulder Batholith, to the alpine peaks of the Absaroka Range, there is more than a lifetime of adventure to be had on rock, ice, and alpine climbs.

Southwest Montana Climbers Coalition is dedicated to securing, protecting, and improving rock, ice, and alpine climbing resources in Southwest Montana.

SMCC is not a Board of Directors or a mystical entity that swoops in to fix problems.  It is YOU, acting as a member of a coalition of conscientious climbers. That coalition’s mission to secure, protect, and improve access to the climbing resources of Southwest Montana.

SMCC is a Montana public charity and is exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3). Contributions are tax deductible under section 170 of the code.
