The New New Buffalo Rock Climbing
Carlos starts The Philosopher's Stone. FoleyPhoto
A short compact basalt cliff with about 25 routes. Expect mostly sport climbs with a handful of trad cracks. A good warm up for The Solar Asylum, as it gets the sun earlier and has easier/shorter routes. Climbable all winter, plenty of afternoon sunshine. Morning shade in summer.
This crag is located about 1/8 mile (5 min walk) West of the Solar Asylum (see the many approaches for The Asylum here on MP). The New Buffalo cliff can be seen above John's Wall to the East and can also be approached by scrambling up the left side of John's Wall and following a faint cairned trail that diagonals up and right (East), about 10 min.

There are just over 25 completed routes now at this little crag. 5.9-5.12a. All the Beta is not in print yet, but the routes are short, easy to spot and pretty straight forward.
