This route ascends the corner on the left-hand side of the wall. Do some tricky moves to get up to the left leaning rail around the second bolt, then head left to get into the major corner and up to a good stance. Finish on the upper face on some great rock. There is an optional short second pitch that goes on gear, and can be easily linked with the first one, watch for drag though.


This route is on the section about 80 yds uphill, from the platform near the big block. Look for the corner on the left side of the wall, this route is the furthest left in this section.

Challenging opening with awkward, pumpy body positions up the sloping rails. Found some 5.10b in the upper part of the route, much like Shredder. First half seems quite a lot harder. Would give it 2-1/2 stars.

I agree with ktmt-very stout opening for sure. I thought the first half climbed harder than 10b/c.

Route starts just right of big orange section of the wall.

Up through 4th bolt I found it very hard and sustained; sketchy holds, no good rest. As a 68 yr geezer I needed tension to rest at the 1st, 2nd and 4th bolts when leading.

All of the routes on Style Wall look to be well protected; kudos to the folks who put them up. I would say this one is harder than it's graded, but hey, I'm old and feeble.

I would agree with above comments, pumpy, awkward, and committed opening few bolts. Not many good rests. Would not disagree if someone told me it was 10+
