DescriptionThis route is on the southern-most end of the west side of Sports Challenge Rock. Just left of the 2 most obvious easy cracks (Ranger JB and Ranger JD) on the south arete of the west face, lies a blunt arete with 2 bolts on it. Climb past the bolts (crux) and up past a 5.10- move on small gear to reach a low-angle finish (moderate, but slightly runout). Belay on gear on the ramp above or continue to the summit and belay from a bomber sink-hole with some larger gear placements.
Rap down from the anchors on the west side of the summit.
Fun enough, but not a destination climb.
