This area is moderately accessible. It is popular because of the route Pineapple Thuderpussy (5.9). Sorry about the name but this is what it has always been called and I will not change the name to be PC. The area receives some shade so it can be a good summer climb.

Getting There 

This formation is on the east side of the Gallatin River. Park at the bridge and cross to the eastside of the river and gain the Riverside trail. "From the main Riverside trail ascend a talus slope, taking a diagonal line northeast toward the Pineapple and Bleacher buttress and the Watchtower, or go same way as for Tango Tower." - The rock climber's guide to Montana.

This is an awesome climb! The crux is 2/3 the way through the first pitch. An airy roof traverse that seems scarier than it is. The rock is suprisingly awesome.
