  • 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.
