On the east face of Challenge, just south of a 25 foot ledge is a right-facing corner. Start in this corner, pop over and follow the bolts, continue up the face.


Bring gear for an anchor, but it does have 3 bolts. You will still need some natural gear to protect the expanse beyone the bolts, but it is easier beyond the bolts.

Don't forget the gear for the anchors. Cams were especially helpful for the anchor.

A 2 bolt anchor has been added to this route. Shared with it's 2 neighbors.

Fun route with interesting moves. You can place a small nut and/or a 00 TCU below the first bolt. Its somewhat tricky to that first bolt so I'd recommend having gear and a few medium size cams for above the bolts. Thanks for the anchor!

Fun route, it should get done more often. The guide says the bolts are weirdly placed. Not so much weirdly as just a bit on the reachy side. I am 5' 9 and I couldn't really clip off the obvious good holds. Just made it a bit heady. If your 6' no problem.
Thin climbing after the last bolt leads to jugs, good gear and the top.
