Description 

One of the larger buttresses on the east side. In the "middle tier" of the crags on this side. Many high quality all trad & mixed lines.

Getting There 

Park in the large lot immediately after crossing the Gallatin River (if coming from Bozeman). Cross the road, aiming for the prominent trail. Follow this trail alongside the river for ~10 minutes until a junction past a large "house-sized" boulder in the river. Head up the hill and pass some smaller buttresses. The trail gets sort of steep and there are a couple switchbacks. Eventually it will deposit you smack dab in the middle of the south face of Black Line Buttress. Allow 20-25 min.

This fun slab line starts directly to the right of Blackline and suffers a bit from a very scary start above a large backbreaker boulder. Lay your backpacks over it or have your belayer give a good spot so if you don't make the first clip (12ish feet off the ground) you don't go splat. Otherwise continue up following bolts through relatively easy terrain until the 5th bolt where it turns into true slab climbing. Pull through 2 more bolts and then head into the top of the Blackline crack. Pul...[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
