Follows gully/cracks to stance where original route's bolt ladder heads right. Ascend  steeper, looser, face (hooking-bolts) to hollow flakes/cracks & cracks formed by huge detached blocks to col. From here traverse to fissure climbing to top of grassy ledges where Challenger's chimney tops out, then slabs up.


from the base of the west face, pass huge block leaning against the wall to ledge/cave, continue on exposed slabs to surmount stacked monster blocks to loose gully- follow it up to base of "water-smoothed" gully with flaring crack on right


bolts, hooks, and pro up to a yellow Tri-Cam
