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.

Black Line 5.10 6b 20 VII- E2 5b  MT : Gallatin Canyon : Black Line Buttress
A beautiful line, one of the best in the Bozone. Sustained crack movement! Somewhat pumpy... After busting the "5.7" traverse at the top (I thought it was a bit harder!), you can continue up a grungy 5.7 crack to the top of the buttress, or take a newer, 5.9 bolted finish which is a bit more direct. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
