Buffalo Power climbs the smoother face of the broken and blocky front face of Koala Rock to the left of the Thin Air trad start. This is easily one of the best climbs on Koala Rock. The opening sequence of this climb uses nice edges on a vertical face that feels cruiser for 5.10c climbing...because it is. Enjoy the opening moves until you reach the crux move about 2/3's of the way up, which routinely causes climbers to pause or take on the first time up. Once past the crux the climbing eases again for a few moves up to the anchor.

The Petzl Sama is a good all-around harness for sport, trad, and multi-pitch climbs. It offers up low profile gear loops, good padding, and non-adjustable yet comfortable leg loops while still not being overly bulky or heavy. Great for beginners or experienced climbers.
