Description

The first pitch is a quite enjoyable offwidth that can be kept at a minimal struggle fest with excellent stemming across a dihedral. It's too bad the rock quality for the stem isn't a little better. The first pitch in my opinion is 3 stars.

From the southwest side of Sisyphus Tower, locate the obvious offwidth up a dihedral. A quick bushwhack mantel leads to the crux dihedral. Good footwork makes the climbing tolerable. Belay at the top of the dihedral. Continue up a widening 5.8 squeeze chimney to a ledge and locate a runnel to the summit.

An anchor for your second on the summit requires some creativity. To descend, downclimb 20 feet off the north side of the tower to reach Not My Style's anchors.

NOTE: a 70m rope barely reaches the bottom of the west side of the tower from Not My Style's anchors. Tie knots at the end of your rope! If you do not have a single 70m rope, TWO 60m ropes are REQUIRED for the descent.

Protection

A double set of cams & nuts. Double BD #5s are recommended.
