  • Description 

    The Green 45 Area is found high on the north slope of Upper Chaos Canyon. Two huge boulders provide a bunch of classic problems.

    Getting There 

    From the huge boulder that guards the approach to Upper Chaos Canyon, head steadily north across the huge talus pile. Instead of working west as for the main Upper area, continue uphill north towards a distinctive large boulder. The area is actually two boulders making a large A-frame cave. The Green 45 is the lower boulder with Jade and 1000 Shades of Green. The larger upper split boulder is a worthy destination with problems such Leviathan Style, Two Ton Tongue and Suicide Season.

    One of the most famous problems in Colorado, Jade was known as "The Green 45 Project" for years. Many good climbers could not connect "The Move" and the problem gained notoriety as a result. Daniel Woods linked it in 2007, and a number of repeats have been done since. The grade has been a matter of controversy since the first ascent, but consensus is lowering it to hard V14.Start low on two small crimps on the right edge of the wall.
