Description

"The Green Mile" starts on the central arete of the Green Monster bouder on a really low sit start with two obvious holds. From here climb the arete to a hard match in the corner. Reach to the Green Monster start hold and cut the feet(the crux). Keep traversing left untell it is possible to go up over the slightly overhanging face on the left side of the main face. You have to do a blind slap to a invisible hold over the top of the bulge from an undercling. Top out. I call it "The Green Mile" since it's about 16 moves long!!!

I think the grades of both the hulk and the green mile have gone up considerably. Dan Dewell ripped off the main hold,(on accident) while attempting the hulk. Hard problems anyone. Nov 10, 2005
I'm sure they wouldn't.The Hulk was called Mark's Dyno, I think : )All glory is fleeting.The standard route is a classic. Nov 6, 2005

I'm sorry, "I'm" sure those guys from the 80's won't care much. Nov 3, 2005

I did not no that. I just called the boulder "Green Monster" because that's what everyone I had talked to sayed it was. I sure those guys from the 80's won't care much. Nov 3, 2005
This whole boulder was known as the "Big Boulder" in the 1980's when climbers first started topping out on the south face of it. The textured face on the southeast side has been known as the "Sculpted Face" for over 25 years. I know of a number of different up problems that were climbed in the 1980's including the "Green Monster" which was actually called "Lemon-Aid" originally. Nov 2, 2005
