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.

Given Black Diamond’s reputation for strong and durable hard goods, we decided to give their 9.9mm rope a try as our go to gym rope. The rope is priced right and works great out of the box but early signs of wear in the gym make it hard to give it the nod as a preferred gym rope.
