BETA PHOTO: Hang and Swing

Description 

This challenging crack line moves up to and past the right side of a small overlap. The crux comes moving through the overlap on a shouldery move left to a good jam. Rock quality is good, pro is good, the climbing is fun and while not of the caliber of the best lines on Sports Challenge, it's definitely worth your time. A good one to do while waiting for Clean and Jerk.

Location 

At the far right end of the East Face of Sports Challenge, topping out on the lowest shoulder of the formation. There is usually a fixed rap anchor slightly right of the topout, basically off the north apex of the formation that will put you down and right of the start.

Protection 

Pro to #3 camalot. Nothing unusual. Crux protects perfectly.

My partner decided to lead out right above the rail on a steep finger crack - lieback flake, seemed about 5.11a. Anyone know the name of this strenuous variation?
