In order to complete the Place a Spirit Crystal at the Tallest Mountain challenge in Fortnite, you need to ascend Mount Kay, and interact with the place where the Spirit Crystal must be placed.
The operative word there is ‘ascend’. That’s because Mount Kay (which is located directly south of Catty Corner on the map) is likely to be quite busy at the start of a match, full of other players trying to achieve the same feat you are.
It would be foolhardy to trust to the kindness of strangers in a competitive game like Fortnite; there is little chance other players are going to leave you in peace to complete this challenge.
It would be wiser, then, to drop nearby and gear up a little bit first, before making the ascent up Mount Kay. Ideally, you will have the peak to yourself, and you can complete the challenge and earn that sweet, sweet XP.

The location shown above is the exact spot you are looking for, simply interact with the base of the flag to complete the challenge. Place a Spirit Crystal at the Tallest Mountain is really simple, it’s just a matter of timing.
Of course, you could always just hot-drop in right from the start and hope for the best! That would be the fastest method, but one that is far less certain to succeed.
Whatever approach you choose, once successful you will earn a whopping 24k XP, which is sure to boost you up the Battle Pass!
