Description 

Start at or just left of the tufa structure at head height, then use a jagged edge for the right hand and tufas for the left hand. Get a solid hand jam between tufas for a clip mid way up. As you start the upper tufa section avoid pulling the base of, or kneebaring the fragile tufa (in fact there are no kneebars on this route, unlike all the others). Head into the tufa field and keep it together for the crux with a solid pump.

Location 

Locate the huge round hueco of Hindenberg's. Buffalo Soldier starts about 12 feet right of that, at a distinctive buffalo nose.

Protection 

11 TITANIUM bolts plus anchor
