Tallest mountain location in Fortnite explained

Here is the location of the tallest mountain on the Fortnite map:

The location of the tallest mountain in Fortnite.

The mountain is called Mount Kay and you can find it directly south of Catty Corner. Mount Kay is quite large and the peak you're heading for is in the southern part of the mountain before it begins to descend to the coast.

The alien invasion of Fortnite has begun! Expect a new Season 7 Battle Pass, UFOs, Alien Artefacts, Cosmic Chests, ray guns, payphone locations and rubber ducks to be added to the new map. There are new challenges for you to complete, including finding spray cans and graffiti. Elsewhere, we have a new Victory Umbrella, and later in the season will be the arrival of a Superman skin.

How to place a spirit crystal at the tallest mountain in Fortnite

Placing a spirit crystal at the tallest mountain in Fortnite is quite an easy challenge to complete - all you have to do is reach the peak of the mountain and interact with the spot where you'll place the crystal.


You'll be able to spot the peak of Mount Kay by the little flag sitting atop it.

The flag marks the peak.

What you need to decide, however, is exactly when you're going to attempt this challenge. Thanks to the mountain's height, it's a very easy place to land, which means you could easily encounter another player attempting the challenge and there's no guarantee they'll let you complete it in peace.

For this reason, it may be a good idea to wait a while before heading up Mount Kay.

Though, if you want to complete this challenge as quickly as possible, we recommend keeping an eye on the other players flying towards Mount Kay. If there's too many, then you'll know to hang back and wait till the area is quiet.

Keep an eye out for other players.
