The lone hard problem at Buffalo Park is a local classic, marred only by a poor landing. Begin from a sit with a left hand slot and a pinch or sloping shelf for the right. Three very difficult moves out the steep belly gain the starting flake of Double Dip Right. Finish with that problem.


The obvious steep cave boulder near the right end of the area. All side walls are off.


The landing has two tiers, separated by a sketchy half-meter drop off. I recommend building up the lower tier with a few pads.
