Past Events

Hellgate work day

Volunteers improved access paths on the Westgate/ Winter Wall, improved belay pads and increased stabilization of staging areas. Thanks for all who came out to lend a hand!

Blue Cloud Adopt A Crag Event

At the end of August, 2019 HCC members made some improvements to the Blue Cloud access including installing a style by the gate to make crossing the fence easier, clearing trees from the access trail, and removing graffiti by the approach. We are fortunate to be able to access this crag through private property and efforts like this help maintain our positive relationship with the land owners.

2019 National Trails Day/ Adopt a Crag Event

Saturday June 1st, members of the Helena Climbing community tackled some much needed improvements to the trails and belay pads at the Mount Helena Crags. We cleaned up the trails to the Sunset Slabs clearing out the scree that has filled in some of the switchbacks and covered some of the user trails that have developed over the last year. Volunteers also improved the trail that runs under the Red Slab area to the Water Streak climbs and improved the belay pads along these walls.

Thank you to all the volunteers and organisations that made the 2019 Trails Day a success! Particularly MCC board members Brad and Andrew who helped secure permission for the work and worked out the logistics, Prickly Pear Land Trust who organized the entire Trail Day chaos, Montana Conservation Corps who provided some extra hands, the Montana Bicycle Guild who lent us tools, the city of Helena for working with us to continue to maintain and improve Mount Helena climbing, and the Helena Climbing Com.


National Trails Day 2018

On 2 June, 2018 we partnered with Prickly Pear Land Trust and Montana Conservation Corps to celebrate National Trails Day. Our volunteers spent the day improving the trails and belay pads on Mount Helena. Thanks to everyone who participated through labor or materials!
