The Gallatin Canyon has prominent rocky features that will entice the inexperienced and expert rock climber alike. The east side is home to a range of trad routes (Spare Rib, the Waltz, et al), while Gallatin Tower and the Cube are on the west side. The canyon is a haven for traditional climbers—the many gear routes, thoughtful sequences, and intricate route-finding provide some of the finest rock climbing experiences anywhere. There are a growing number of sport routes, bolt anchors, and mixed lines, creating a fun experience for many different styles and abilities.

Directions: From Bozeman, head west on Huffine Lane to Four Corners. Turn left, head south for approximately 20 minutes, and you're there. For Gallatin Tower and the Cube, park in the prominent pullout on the right. For all other areas, continue a short distance, cross the "35 mph bridge," and park in a large dirt area next to the river.

Solid rock, great views, river tumbling below... the Canyon is great. Only drawback is all the traffic but hey, the highway's what makes it possible to climb the Tower after work. Pic is of the second pitch of the Waltz.

What's your take?

So, what do you REALLY think?
Have pics of this place? Toss 'em in here! Keep it clean, though, this is a G-rated establishment!
