Blodgett Canyon - Hamilton

The south facing side of the canyon is littered with granite cliffs and spires. There is camping right before the trail head as well as a bathroom right there in the parking lot. Most of the approaches to the spires can be a bit grueling, especially the ones further down the canyon.
