The east face of Challenge Buttress is characterized by a complex topography including various outcroppings, aretes, and gullies.

Getting There 

Park at Stairs Gulch, and clamber up the bank on the SW of where the creek crosses the road. Follow the trail through the woods until you reach a fork; take the left fork for the east face.

This climbs the crack on the Teflon's face. This face is on the east face of Challenge, about 100 yds beyond the fork. It protects well and is a decent beginner trad route.
