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.

Generation X 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a  MT : Gallatin Canyon : Gallatin Tower
The logical progression if you wish to get to the top of the tower from the top of Orange Crack if you can't climb 5.11. After climbing Orange Crack's first pitch step right around the corner (Less bold individuals may wish to stay roped in for this) and to the base of the back wall. Looking up and you can spot a bolt ~9 feet off the ground and one at around 70 feet. This is Generation X. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MT
