Description

This is a very fun, left-facing, dihedral offwidth. It starts out fists and widens to a bombay offwidth as it goes over a bulge. The crux is the top half. This is a very fun and interesting offwidth of the non-stacking variety. The name was inspired by the holes the problem left in my shirt.

Location

Park in the picnic area for lower Blair and walk more or less north west, aiming to go left around the closest rocks. Pick up the obvious trail and follow it through the fence by the stream and up the obvious gully. Follow the trail past the obvious formation on the left, and when you are about even with the end of the formation, look up and slightly left where you will see a promising cluster of boulders. Buckshot is in this cluster of boulders and is facing you, though it will be obscured from view.

Protection

A pad and a spotter. The landing is flat.
