"The Green Mile" climbs the wonderfully pocketed steep face on the far right side of The Egg Cup buttress. It is easily seen to the left as one walks up the trail into the shady
First Corridor. Climb the face left of the rounded flake on splendid pockets to a high 1st bolt. Continue up and right following the line of pockets to a large inclusion on the left. The pockets end and the face bulges out to yield a committing crux on small fingery edges, then more pockets to a last bolt and a series of awesome moves to an anchor below the ledge.
Left of the trail as you pass The Egg on the approach to the First Corridor proper. Just left of the rounded flake that forms the left edge of the huge hueco or solution pocket at the base of the east face of The Egg.
5 bolts & 2-ring Fixe anchor (below the ledge).

Probably the best line, but also the most difficult of the four routes on this wall. None of the moves, including the crux, are particularly hard by themselves; but the overall pumpy-ness should get you panting by the end.

It's a no star pile of rubble! Like all his routes. Should be called "The Pile" No joke Chiseled holds and all.

The steepest line on The Egg Cup Buttress. A sweet line of pockets, with a gently overhanging committing crux on thin edges and crimps between pockets. Nothing chiseled on this great line.
