A buttress high in the canyon with a selection of good routes. Well worth the hike, especially when linked with routes on other nearby crags.

Getting There 

See the Black Line Buttress approach description. Continue past Black Line Buttress on the main trail, ascending a couple of rough switchbacks. Pass a smaller fin of rock (some routes) to a nice west-facing prow with a couple of visible bolts. This is Ashes of Stone.

Ashes of Stone 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Montana : Gallatin Canyon : Ashes of Stone Buttress
Awesome face climbing with a beautiful position high in the canyon. Clip the first bolt, move through the mini roof, and follow a couple more bolts on the rightish side of the rib, eventually climbing a short crack to a large ledge. Scramble up a bit higher on easy 5th rock to a bunch of bolts (apparently placed as a highline anchor). Don't be too surprised if they're not there- they've been chopped before. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Montana
