Description

The Right Stuff is a wild route that climbs a series of enormous flakes on the left side of the Challenger Wall. Care must be taken when climbing and protecting this route.

Begin about 50' left of Challenger at a small left-facing corner. Climb these corners and grooves to an obvious roof/undercling crack. Jam out the left side of this and work up and left on a horizontal. Gingerly mantle up to a massive flake and climb the right side of it (increasingly more solid sounding). At the top, hand traverse left and step up into an obvious right-facing corner. Protect and climb a punchy crux to a good cam in a horizontal and make one last mantle onto a ledge. Belay here or lower to the ground.

There is a second pitch (5.10a) that continues up the right-facing corner above to a wide roof with a large chockstone.

Protection

Standard rack with a few extra 0.75" to 2" pieces. Plenty of slings and a 70m rope for getting down.
