Description

The Buffalo Pit has undergone a huge transformation in the last couple of seasons (2016/2017) mostly thanks to the Rumney Climbers Association purchase of the "Final Frontier" land which included the Buffalo Pit. Of course Team Tough was behind the face-lift for the crag, those guys can transform a pile of moss and lichen in to a world class crag with amazing efficiency.

Currently there are routes from 5.4-5.13 and work on the crag is ongoing. Obviously the cliff is fast becoming popular aided by the convenience the new parking lot that went in in November 2017 that drops you 1 minute from the cliff base. 

Getting There

Drive past the main parking lots and continue for about a mile. The parking area will be on your right. The Buffalo Pit can be seen up the hill away from the road and there is a trail on the right hand side of the lot when facing away from the road. About 1 minute up the trail to the cliff.

If the lot is full, absolutely do not park along the road! You need to go somewhere else.
