This area is the east side of the river of what is generally referred to as “The Canyon”. The bulk to the gneiss rock formations are found here. Classics such as Spare Rib, Pineapple Thunderpussy, and The Waltz are all found in this area.
Getting There [Edit]
Driving south on Hwy 191 from Four Corners, park just after the “35 mph” bridge, which is about 9.5 miles south of the canyon entrance and just across the river from the Lava Lake trailhead (13 miles from Big Sky stoplight). Cross under the bridge heading north and back up onto the two track, and cut up and right into the woods when the two track ends. Continue along the river for a little under a half mile, and back up into the woods. You will come to an obvious fork in the trail. Left takes you to the Waltz, Pineapple, and Watchtower buttresses. Right takes you towards Blackline, Skyline and Sparerib buttresses.
