Fortnite - Tallest mountain location: Place a spirit crystal at the tallest mountain explained

Make sure you enjoy the view.

Placing a spirit crystal at the tallest mountain is one of the challenges you can complete in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6.

This challenge relies on you having a good understanding of the island's geography, so you can easily pinpoint the location of the tallest mountain.

Completing this challenge will reward you with 24k XP, which will help you climb the Season 6 Battle Pass.

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.

Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Prowler skin, along with the return of jetpacks and Choppas. As we enter Season 2's final month, it's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite. You can also complete Resistance challenges, including collecting signal jammers and finding an energy fluctuation. Don't forget about the Seasonal challenges, which include planting saplings and call an Air Strike on a tank. Meanwhile Victory Crowns and the character collection have returned, along with a new Victory Umbrella to earn.

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.
