Chinese wall montana from Bonanza

The view: Montana’s Chinese Wall in the Bob Marshall Wilderness

The pilot: Jeff Morrison

The airplane: 1964 S-35 Bonanza

The mission: On the way to weekend camping in the backcountry

The memory: Great visibility with early morning sunrise made for a spectacular view of the Chinese Wall, a 1000 ft. high escarpment that stretches unbroken for 12 miles.


  • Great view. I hiked the base so that wall (and then over Pentagon Mt to the North) on a two week trip across the Bob Marshell to Glacier. Looking forward to flying it next summer. Betting the rocks coming off the wall don’t bother me as much from above….
