Recently I had seen some videos of a problem called Tribulations which was rumored to be one of the best of its grade in the state, and had heard heard rave reviews from another close friend, so I decided to make the trek.
The climbing around Buena Vista is separated into small clusters of problems which for the most part are more or less roadside. We spent all of our time at Turtle Rocks.

After warming up on Beef Supreme, we moved on to the main cluster. I was able to flash Tribulations (7B+/V8), climb The Growler (7B+/V8), and complete The Prowler (7C+/V10). These problems are all fantastic, and I think Tribulations alone is worth the drive! Enjoy the videos below, nothing fancy just uncut goodness!!
