Good moves going up the step face. You only need BD Stoppers 4-9 and a #3 C4 for placing gear after the 6 bolts towards the anchor. Apr 11, 2014

I haven't climbed to many routes in Buena Vista, but this is my favorite so far. Great edges on a steep face with a big tree to help shade you from the sun. I didn't have any gear for the top, but if you can climb everything to that point, it's a cake walk to the anchors. It can't be more than 5.7 after you pull up and off the steep face. Apr 4, 2015
