This is a short, west-facing wall high on the Strone Crag/Standard Ridge escarpment. It is shaded until mid-day, then cooks the remainder. Developed by (you guessed it) the Ruckman brothers, the wall was named for a very successful Canadian rock band (now up to 24 gold and 14 platinum records, according to Wikipedia), and most of its route names have a Rush theme.
The most straightforward approach begins on the trail heading to west face of Challenge Buttress. Once under the west face, negotiate the boulder and scree gully just west (downcanyon) for a few more hundred yards, well past the indistinct trail leading to Wealth of Nations, until able to climb through an obvious notch separating Strone Crag and Standard Ridge. If you miss the notch and continue up the boulders and scree, you’ll eventually end up under Lonely Challenge Wall.
