Crystal Delight 5.8 5b 16 VI- HVS 4c MT : 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 MT
