The short right trending crack just right of the 5.11b Tuff'n Up. Not a great climb, only climbed as we were confused as to where Tuff Enough was.


Standard rack, 2 bolt anchor atop Tuff'n Up.

I wonder if this is Tuff Enough? The original Ruckman guide says it is 25 left of Guilt Trip. And the crack that I always thought was tuff enough is at most only about 10 feet left? Alwasy seemed way harder than 5.8 too? Oct 3, 2008

When you walk around the North side of Challenge you come to a belay area where a short offwith crack agains a ledge beneath a roof with an arete on the left and a crack up the middle. The 2-bolt arete to chains is Broken Thumb. The crack right of it is Tuff Enough.

Gain the first ledge and walk left to a hidden belay ledge with a series of broken cracks (On A Whim) on the left face, and on the right, a three-bolt sport climb (Tuff n'Up) and a dirty, right-leaning finger crack, Nuthin' Tuff.

Nuthin' Tuff climbs frangible, moss-covered crimpers and fingerlocks with gear in less than inspiring rock. I placed several offset nuts, C3s, and a #1 BD. Protection is there but stitching this up would require ingenuity. Pull several cool, big moves onto the block up top or chicken out right into the chimney (and blow the lead).

Hangers with no chains. Walk across to chains for Broken Thumb, Flamin' Freddie, or Guilt Trip, all of which are visible and accessible. Jul 28, 2014
