This route is on the east face. It is the southern most climb. It climbs a north-facing fin of rock, about 50 feet beyond the beginning of the gully that separates Challenge from the next east buttress. It climbs a thin finger crack up an overhung face. Not only is it overhung but the crack causes you to change tactics on it more than once as the angles keep changing. Once you gain the ledge at mid-climb. The severity eases up with a relatively easy romp to the top. Laybacks, sidepulls, and thin finger jams, plus a few juggy pulls are all called for.


The anchor can be set utilizing large slings around the horn at the top and a couple medium/large pieces to back up the horn. Approach the top by continuing up the gully to a large pine tree and then scramble up this crack system to the top.
