Challenger Wall is located in the South Fork of Pine Creek. It is North facing and gets shade all day. It Also gets pretty windy so bring some warm clothes for the belays in the colder months. You are pretty much guarenteed not to see any other parties on the wall but who knows with the new guide books'intrigueing photos and excellent route descriptions.
Take the Pine Creek Trail Head all the way till it forks to go to Dark Shadows or Cat in the Hat. Take the South (Left) Fork towards Cat in the Hat. Once you have the option to head up towards Cat in the Hat drop in the wash towards a cairn and follow it for about fifteen minutes.

The setting is beautiful, the stone varnished, the gear is where you want it, and you'll probably have the wall to yourself. In the Spring of 2010 my partner and I found a straight-sided stopper stamped "VB" (Paul Van Bettten?) and a Forest Titon stamped "PH" on the route. Evidence of the climb's seldom-done status.There are 5 pitches, one of which is below average, but the other 4 are exceptional.
