"Wrestling the Buffalo" is a stellar problem on the northern side of this boulder working off of a nice sidepull with the right hand and a sloper on the left into a funky left foot sequence and a high reach with the right hand on the rib. The top out is pretty interesting, too. The landing would seem to be treacherous, but the fall is gentle and onto flat ground. A great problem.

Hey. I got the first ascent of this little beauty. Dave A. and I walked by this problem so many times before deciding that it was worth a try. It turned out to be so good! Really fun and slappy. The name is actually Wrestling With A Buffalo. I know I'm picky.
