We thought this was a FA (Karl Kiser and Alex Sfakianos) but there was an old wired nut high on the route (and out of sight until we climbed to it). The three lower anchors on this wall were placed later. Beverly named the routes for the guide (the lower anchors). Apr 1, 2008

It is really hard to stay on route here because every 2 horizontal feet could be another route. So we climbed this entire face every which way really trying to make the routes as hard as possible. IMHO that is the beauty of climbing here in the Styx area you can climb all day and make routes easy or harder.

ANCHORS: We inspected all the anchors in the Styx area, they are new stainless steel bomber! Jun 30, 2015

Climbing at Styx Oct. 18 had a lovely large rock dislodge. This wasn't the only loose one we encountered that day but it was the biggest. Oct 30, 2015
