Stun Gunnin'

V5, Boulder, 13 ft,  Avg: 2 from 1 vote
FA: unknown
Colorado > Grand Junction… > Unaweep Canyon > Nine Mile Hill > Texas Boulder Area > Buffer Block

Description

Stun Gunnin' climbs a sloper lip to a clean arete on decent stone.

Sit start matched on the sloper near the center of the face. From there, work out to the arete via slopers, gain a small edge on the slab, crank up to the arete, reach the lip, and mantel atop the boulder.

Location

It climbs the east face arete of Buffer.

Protection

At least three pads or a few pads and a spotter. The immediate landing is great, but there is a rock directly behind the problem (it works great as a spot if you don't have one).
