Abstract: We give a complete description of the quotient complex ${\cal C}$ obtained by dividing out the ${\mathbb F}_{p}$ Eilenberg-Mac Lane wedge summands in the first term of the $BP\langle 1\rangle$-Adams spectral sequence for the sphere spectrum $S^0$. We also give a detailed computation of the cohomology groups $H^{s,t}({\cal C})$ and obtain as a consequence a vanishing line of slope $(p^{2}-p-1)^{-1}$ in their usual $(t-s, s)$ representation. These calculations are interpreted as giving general simple conditions to lift homotopy classes through a $BP\langle 1 \rangle$ resolution of $S^0$.
