Cut by the Yellowstone River, this climb up Clarks Fork Canyon is amazingly gorgeous. The route starts and ends next to very calm water with wide canyon walls. There are intense sections of the route that are a forced swim through rough waters with tight walls. Opportunities to view wildlife abound in this untouched wilderness. The route can also be done the opposite way with a descent down the river.
