Beehive Mountain, South Face, Spanish Peaks. On October 18 Craig Zaspel and I packed into the Spanish Peaks Primitive Area from the Big Sky Ski Resort. We approached the peak via Beehive Basin, which led us directly to the base of the rock. Our route started near the center of the face, just left of an obvious dihedral-chimney. The crux was the third pitch where we climbed two overhangs free. The angle then lessened and gave easier climbing to the summit. Six pitches. NCCS III, F9.
