Description 

This is a nice route located on the Three Towers (the big dihedrals) to the left of the Main Cave. The Green Hornet takes the beautiful lichen-painted face between the two largest dihedrals.

The first pitch is kind of ugly. Climb up easy, broken rock to the first bolt under a bulge. Make some thuggish moves out the steep bulge and then climb up more easy terrain to a bolted anchor. Belay here if you want, or with smart use of slings down low, you can link the pitches.

The second pitch tackles the nice headwall. Good edges lead through a couple tricky sequences of face climbing before arriving at the slight overhang near the end. A diagonal crack provides the occasional fist or handjam as you climb up and right to the anchor.

Make two rappels with a single rope to descend.
