Green Ripper is to the right of Steve's Arete as you look down towards the Highway. It is also easily identified by the four ring bolts. The route starts off of the the ledge. The first bolt is easily clipped from there. This climb packs a lot of climbing into 35 feet. Two of the local guides give it only one star. Climb it and see for yourself. The climbing is powerful and fun.
Four odd ring bolts and chain anchors.

Good climbing on thin edges but the ring bolts (Mammut?) are a pain to clip and should be replaced.

The bolts have been replaced with 3.75" stainless in approx the same locations.

Felt like some pretty crucial holds are about to break off. Glad I got it done while it is still a 5.12.

Where's that picture of Lynn Hill leading this thing? Saw it somewhere but can't remember where. Apparently EFR was belaying :-)
Interesting how Mt. Lemmon was actually a destination for pros in the 80s.

this route is short but it packs a lot of punch in 30 feet--steep face climbing on small crimps and side pulls, delicate footwork off sloping handholds, even a dyno to a jug. i can't wait to get back on it this spring and send it.
