Description

A Jungle Buzzard is a Hobo who preys on his own, so look out for this overhanging arete. NOTE- you will probably want to hang the second draw, and stick clip the first.

Power your way up to the obvious jug and continue past another little burly move using an inconspicuous two finger, full pad side pull to access some larger holds. Turn the slab and scamper to the top. If you are into roped bouldering, unlocking this problem could please you. Endurance climbers beware.

Location

Shares starting holds with Steel Reserve, then follow arête.

Protection

6 bolts, 2 bolt fixed biner anchor.

Word. The first boulder problem is manageable, but it's pretty funky between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. Jul 7, 2012
If I rated it as a boulder problem...I'd call it at least v5....possibly v6...which makes it at least 12c. Tamara must be crushing for this to feel like a b/c. Jul 22, 2012

One long crux from ground to above bolt 3. Powerful and off balance movement with leggy compression. Roped bouldering is my kind of bouldering! Would be three stars if it were twice as long. Jul 22, 2012

In between bolts 2 and 3 is an inconspicuous two finger, full pad hold that feels like a two finger pocket, but it certainly doesn’t look like one. I found this hold to be the key to keep it in the grade. Sep 6, 2018
