Description 

The east face of Challenge Buttress is characterized by a complex topography including various outcroppings, aretes, and gullies.


Getting There 

Park at Stairs Gulch, and clamber up the bank on the SW of where the creek crosses the road. Follow the trail through the woods until you reach a fork; take the left fork for the east face.

Here is the start of leftoverture. Its fun. Tricky getting from the dihedral to the arete IMO. But I'm weak. This climb gets very little love I think. Fun to do once. I probably wont bother trying to RP it till someday I'm at challenge and everything else is taken.

Leftoverture 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : East Face
This route climbs the east face, at a right-facing corner. It is north of the obvious arete by 20-30 feet. After the corner ends climb the face. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
