Buffalo's in Space climbs the striking crack on the west face of the Pinnacle.


Far left side of the pinnacle. Scramble up loose gully to nook where you can belay.

One of the best single pitch 5.13 trad routes in Colorado. The gear is plentiful and bomber, and the movement and position are second to none. It's uniquely "endurance-y" for this type of route; from the midway point no move is especially hard, but no move is particularly easy either.

Shade until 1 pm in the Fall. You could rappel west off the summit (approximately 30' down fixed anchor atop the route) if you wanted to check this route out on toprope, although going ground up is a non-issue, apart from the slightly annoying, bushy, 4th Class approach gully. Nov 19, 2017
