Green Bulge begins at the base of a relatively flat slab of red rock a little east from Orgasm. After climbing the face up to ledge, climb up towards the small tower.
Used a toprope, good anchor in a tree. Used two nuts.

I've been told that you can climb the first half of this route without using your hands to pull up, only palms. May be an interesting variation..

Great face climb and a fun place to practice some footwork. Crux is about half way up the route on a large sloper. For top rope anchor you can also sling very large rock sitting atop last ledge.

To keep the difficulty sustained when you get to the tower, climb straight up the south face (instead of going to the right at the top of the shallow dihedral) and do a tough mantel to reach the biners at the top.

The starting slab is a fun bolder spot.The whole route is excelent for practicing smearing and crimping. i found and ausome under cling that help me make it through the crux. (3/4 of the way up, i think)Stay to the right for a challenge.

Gear is heinous, I got one good piece, a tricam, about 3/4 the way up. I wasn't carrying cams though but I didn't see any good placements for one anyway. Finishing on the ledge above New Light Waves is wrong, finish on the top of the tower utilizing the face directly or the left arete.

Requires faith in the friction of both your hands and feet!
A great TR, starting from the right end of the slab, or a pretty good lead from the left, starting over near "Balcony." Small, shallow nut at the crux (1/8 - 1/4"). If you are tall enough you can reach up to the right and get in a small (1/2") cam or tricam.
