Lot Lizards 5.12 7b+ 27 VIII+ 26 E6 6b  MT : Gallatin Canyon : First Buttress
South side of First Buttress. Start 50' below "Down Under" at the base of a very large flake feature. Clip one bolt then traverse left to a small hands crack leading to a ledge. Climb the left of two seams (small cam) up to a bolt. Ascend through another bolt to an overhang with gear options. An overhanging right wards traverse leads to a bolt-protected exit. Fun, repeatable. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MT

So happy that someone could take advantage of the bolts/chains I installed left of "Biofuel" and the rockfall mitigation/cleaning performed to put up a route. Your welcome. I wasn't excited about that project at all.

EDIT: I mean right.

I apologize to Awhit, everyone feel free to get on the project left of Double Barrel Shotgun. Great 12a climbing to V9/10 boulder problem.

I figured it'd be that hard for a bit. That's some blank Gally Glass. No problems.
