Challenger Wall is located in the South Fork of Pine Creek. It is North facing and gets shade all day. It Also gets pretty windy so bring some warm clothes for the belays in the colder months. You are pretty much guarenteed not to see any other parties on the wall but who knows with the new guide books'intrigueing photos and excellent route descriptions.
Take the Pine Creek Trail Head all the way till it forks to go to Dark Shadows or Cat in the Hat. Take the South (Left) Fork towards Cat in the Hat. Once you have the option to head up towards Cat in the Hat drop in the wash towards a cairn and follow it for about fifteen minutes.

Challenger may be the first route to be established on this wall but I'm not sure. Rope up below the most central crack system on the cliff and it also has a prominent little porch of rock to lay your rack out on. You can also add two more pitches (5.8 and 5.10d) to the four described here. Pitch 1) -5.10d: Start climbing up moderate terrain directly below the roof that marks the crux of the first pitch. Get below the roof and do some cool opposition moves to gain your position below the roof. ...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
