Description

Start on orange-hued rock behind a large flake, that leans away from the wall. A few hard moves past the first 3 bolts get you to a nice ledge with the best moves to come. Lieback the flake above while saving a little bit of juice for the steep and juggy climax.

Location

Take the Surreal Estate approach trail to the Bank which deposits you underneath Staying Power.

Just left of Courage and Enlightenment, find a large black flake that leans away from the wall. The flake provides a great back rest for your belayer and a convenient stance to clip the first bolt on Leverage.

Protection

9 bolts to two bolt anchor with chains.

I thought this was a really good addition for the area. It is fairly long, the climbing is really fun, and it is well-protected. Dec 2, 2013

Hi Chris, I'm not sure which route you climbed, but Sicilian Style and Leverage are two different routes. Sicilian Style starts about 10 feet to the left in a series of dihedrals before tackling a crack and rounded black face just before the anchors. Leverage is a new route, not in the latest D'Antonio guide, and starts immediately behind a large black flake. Hope that clears things up. Apr 10, 2014
