DescriptionGreen Slabs (South Face) is a great destination for moderate trad lines. Routes range in difficulty from 5.6 to 5.12 with the majority in the 5.7 to 5.10 range. The crag sees some traffic but is rarely crowded. It is minutes from the road and partially shaded by trees. Most, but not all, routes have chain anchors. The wall resides at a comparatively low elevation and faces south, making it a good choice for cool days. The crag sees morning shade but is otherwise sunny.
Green Acres (North Face), which is located on the north face of the Green Slabs Area is a small, lush crag that never sees sun. The routes force peculiar movement over undulating, twisted features. The fractured rock creates a feeling of unease but somehow manages to hold together. This wall is a bizarre, unique, slightly unnerving crag with both sport and trad lines.
Getting TherePark at the mile marker 9.9 pullout on the east (summit bound) side of the road. The pullout is immediately before pronounced road cuts on both sides of the highway. The Green Slabs Area is the formation to the east which touches the road. Green Slabs (South Face) is the south facing wall; Green Acres (North Face) is the north facing wall.
