DescriptionThis is a very cool formation. This area receives a lot of traffic due to the moderate climbs. It is primarily in the sun--so in peak summer season you may want to hit it during the morning or evening.
It is a very cool prominent finlike formation that is divided into three distinctly different steps that point directly toward the river. Since it has these steps, not all of the rock is of high quality.
Getting ThereWaltz formation is located on the eastside of the Gallatin river smack down in the middle of all the formations. It is one of the easier formations to get to.
To get there walk down river (north) until you are directly across canyon from Gallatin Tower then leave the Riverside trail and follow the typical climbers trail (switchbacks) up slope to the base of the Waltz's formation.
