This is my favorite problem at BP. Start down below the roof on two awesome sidepull tubes. Work up and out the roof to two more awesome sidepull tubes. Move up to a small hold with the left, bring the feet up over the little roof and punch it to the high slightly sloping jug at the top.

The landing is separated by a large boulder that is relatively flat on top. Pads and spotters certainly help.


Right side of BP, just right of Block Arete.

Took a fall on the last move when my foot cut. I missed my pad which was on the flat boulder and seriously bruised the arch of my foot, could have been a little worse, so a word of warning. I would recommend using at least two pads.

That being said, this problem is my favorite at Buffalo Park, it is a proud line with great climbing!
