Description:

It's on the east face of Challenge. It is near the south end before the gully begins. When you get to the fork in the trail, look south and you can see a nice angling 5.7 finger/hand crack in an arete, just left of this is the face with 1 bolt. This climbs that face utilizing the bolt. This is a wonderful but short climb. Would be 3 stars if it were a little longer.

4 out of 5 stars Very fun

Several fun and challenging moves. Several fun variations as well, just don't try to avoid the crux just above the bolt.

3 out of 5 stars Great little slab!

I agree that this route is to short, but some really fun moves! There is a 5.10d crux move above the bolt, but the rest of the climb is probably 5.10a/b.

3 out of 5 stars Needs 100 more feet.

Fantastic climbing on a sadly short route. Testy to the bolt, with a really fun crank to the first good horizontal. Good gear below and above the bolt. Mostly incuts and crankin', only a touch of... Uh, nevermind. Could be 10c because it is short, I guess, but whatever. Fun stuff, regardless.
