Rockfax Description
Stylish moves up the wall above the start of Gillette Direct. Follow Gillette Direct to the base of its long corner. Move up and right to a thin crack right of the arete and climb it to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Starts as for Gilette Direct, but then tackles the brilliant upper cracks of 'Cut Throat' thus, missing out the hard starting crack of the 'E3' and making the whole route sustained E2.

Mike505 7 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S Brilliant, simply brilliant. I enjoyed it more than Gillett Direct, it's pretty slabby so never felt desperate but poor foot work may be punished. I tried the 'Cut Throat' start, the move is ok but the hold was agony to use when hanging trying to place gear, it would feel out of keeping with the rest of the route I think. Ended up using the normal start which hurt a lot less!
