About Buffalo mountain - South face:

This rock is called the MAYO-MAKER and will take some hiking off the beaten path to get to. I would only attempt this if you're ready to tumble a 1000 ft or so down the mountain. As far as I know it's not regulated by the park service so there is no fees or camping areas. The best part about climbing here is the view. A lot of this seems unclimbed. 30-40ft with 5.4 - 5.10 <--my best guess
Nearest town or city: Silverthorne
Directions: Start at the buffalo mountain trailhead, it's a farely easy hike. Once you've made it to the summit, you should see another slightly smaller fake summit to your southwest. Just down from that is the rock wall. The hike down from there is very steep and dangerous, but do-able without aid. To get back on the trail just head east/southeast through the forest and you'll run back into the trail. Its a lot of work, but worth it!
