Description 

A surprisingly nice line, with good protection and a committing move or two down low. The rock quality here is much better than some nearby routes. With more traffic and judicious use of a brush on some key holds, this new route will be even more fun.

Little Green Men starts below a series of discontinuous left-facing flakes, about 5' right of a small tree on the cliffline trail. Fairly easy climbing past the first flake leads to a nice ledge; from the ledge, make some balancy moves (crux) on thin and/or lichen covered holds to gain the next flake. Continue up a crack and trend left to a small ledge below a left-facing corner. Move up the corner and onto the face, finishing at a small crack to topout at a pine tree.

NOTE: Until bolted anchors are installed, be careful with how you route your rope for rapping or toproping, as the crack in the lip at the top is a real potential rope-eater.


Location 

Located in the Serenity Walls section, about 20' right of Harvest Time. New webbing and rap rings on a pine tree at the top.


Protection 

Small to medium gear (up to #2 Camalot or equivalent). No bolts, build a gear anchor.
