Hike to the Blackline formation skirting around the western protuding edge of the formation to continue traversing north. Follow the climbers train from the prow of blackline north staying relatively at the same elevation until the wall is visible on one's right. Scramble up mossy 3rd and 4th class terrain to a small ledge where the climbs begin.

Rock Climbing Photo: White dyke

Crystal Delight 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Montana : Gallatin Canyon : Fish Face
Crystal delight starts on the L side of fish face wall. This route doesn't look like much from the ground, but ended up being a blast! Climb up the white crystal dyke passing by a few pins along the way. Pro is great on this pitch, so don't hesitate to jump on it!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Montana
