Description 

Despite this route's short stature, it as the name implies challenging. Begin on easy slab climbing to the first bolt where big moves on small incut holds await. Move past two more bolts up and left or head right after the third into an enjoyable undercling.

Location 

Furthest bolted line to the left

Protection 

Three bolts and two chains attached to a tree.

"Three bolts and two chains attached to a tree."

Challenger has two long chains at the anchor but they aren't hanging from a tree (two hangers under the moss). Maybe you're thinking of Rubicon?

Though it looks neglected, most of the foot & handholds are clean. Fun little climb.
