[Hide Comment] With the caveat that I've only been to T-Wall once: this route is fun because the style was really different than the area classics that I was on. It seemed kinda thuggy with the occasional off-width style move and requisite stems. I'd say "8+" is accurate, but the style was so different that it was harder for me than Cake Walk by a country mile. So, probably not for aspiring 8 leaders. Of course, I climb like a pregnant cow, so take that for what it's worth. I only needed 1 #4. Jan 19, 2015
