Lot Lizards 5.12 7b+ 27 VIII+ 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
