Seasonal Closure Details


This is a short, fun, face climb on the left side of the Three Buffoons formation. If you are there, it begs to be climbed. It may have been previously done (maybe with a different name), but judging on the lichen, not too recently. It remains in the shade in the morning. It is for the seekers of the obscure & close or the cogno-lost.

Move up the lower block to the right to gain access to this undercut face. Traverse in from the right, gain an undercling, reach high for holds & yard/thrutch up to a stance (crux). Continue up easier terrain to the top. 50 feet. Walk off left.

This is on the fatter side of 1 star.

This favors an average to taller climber.


6 x 48 in & 2 x 24 in slings for a TR or a huge crash pad.

Fun moves, if it saw more traffic it might shed some lichen and earn another star. Mar 18, 2008
