Russell Peak East Face

The east face of Russell is technical and can be tight depending upon snow conditions.  It is east facing, which means it gets sun early, and it also involves much steeper lines. The longest descents are from the peak, but they are very committing. Once you are up there, there is no backing out and escape routes are hard to come by should something slide.

Details

Popular backcountry zone near Big Sky and Moonlight Basin.  Contains a variety of terrain from safe, well protected trees, to big alpine descents.  Be cautious of avalanche conditions, as most of the best descents will put you through the strainer if caught in a slide.  Avi conditions are at mtavalanche.com

How to Get There

Access is typically from the Beehive Basin trailhead.  While driving towards Moonlight Basin on Lone Mountain Trail Road, turn right on Crow King road, and follow it to the Beehive Basin Trailhead.
