Description 

The tower faces east, getting lots of morning sun. I've probably seen more parties at this crag than anywhere else in Gallatin Canyon. Lots of concentrated classics and some of the better cracks in the canyon, on high-quality gneiss.

Getting There 

Find a dirt pullout on your right (if you're heading south), about a mile before you come to the bridge over the river. Hit a trail that heads sourth out of the parking lot & follow it to the base.
