upper crack (top down)


Perhaps the best problem at Buffalo Park, packing a variety of great movement into the proudest section of the cliffband. Jam the crack to the roof, then move straight out to big holds at the horizontal shelf. Finish with solid jams in a finger crack and a high, exciting top out. Or, from the horizontal, traverse left or right along the rail to easier topouts. I recommend starting and finishing your BP circuit with a lap (or two, or five.)


Starts in the obvious deep cleft around the middle of the area and climbs straight out the roof into a finger crack.


Pads and spotter are highly recommended, especially if this is at your limit. The upper moves can be insecure and the landing is poor.
