Nine Style is naturally defined by two drainages on its north and south side, and East Creek to the east and the canyon wall to the west. The boulders are densely scattered throughout the area and range from small to huge in size with typical Nine Mile quality.
The area is entirely shaded by late afternoon making it a good summer destination. Also, access may be difficult during spring runoff as East Creek can run fairly high.
A group of climbers posted this good video highlighting some boulders found in the Nine Style Boulder Area:
There are two pullouts that allow access to the area. From the intersection of US-50/CO HWY 141, the first and second pullout are 2.4 and 2.7 miles on road right. From the pullout of your choice, cross East Creek and climb a short hill and you're there.
Sit-start with hands on two small crimps and a big heel hook with the left foot on the west side of the boulder. From there, make an unorthodox move to the prow of the arete and continue upward. The crux for me was getting the first two or three moves. This is just atypical for Unaweep bouldering.This is also the first problem on the video posted under the Nine Mile Style area. I just thought it was a good problem, so I wanted to share....[more]Browse More Classics in CO
There are 8 to 10 problems here that are really high quality and range from grades of V2 to V10. There is a V5 that starts the same as "Food Lube" and goes straight out the steep wall with big moves. There is also a boulder not in the video that is shorter, bright orange with 2 problems that are really fun shorties. To the right of the problem "Overdue" on the other side of the flat leaning rock is another V2/3 SDS. Get on these boulders. The best movement and rock I found in the canyon.
