Lot Lizards 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  Montana : Gallatin Canyon : First Buttress
South side of First Buttress. Start 50' below "Down Under" at the base of a very large flake feature. Clip one bolt then traverse left to a small hands crack leading to a ledge. Climb the left of two seams (small cam) up to a bolt. Ascend through another bolt to an overhang with gear options. An overhanging right wards traverse leads to a bolt-protected exit. Fun, repeatable. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Montana

I apologize to Awhit, everyone feel free to get on the project left of Double Barrel Shotgun. Great 12a climbing to V9/10 boulder problem.
