Buffalo Bob... great crack climb


Buffalo Bob is the striking handcrack at the right end of the Deadwater cliff.

Up the handcrack to the top, then move right and up through the steep face on good holds to the anchor.


On the right end of the Deadwater cliff at an obvious splitter handcrack in a large right facing corner. The right side of this corner is often wet.


G - Extra 3" cams for the crack. Cold shut anchor shared with "Reach for the Sky" and "Festus".

The climbing was good and deserving of the +, but the finish was kinda spooky for me since it seemed that it was on multiple cantilevered blocks. All solid I'm sure, but I couldn't shake the image of them ripping out and onto my belayer...
