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 3.75" stainless bolts to chain anchors.

Good climbing on thin edges but the ring bolts (Mammut?) are a pain to clip and should be replaced. Jan 25, 2006

The bolts have been replaced with 3.75" stainless in approx the same locations. Oct 30, 2007

Felt like some pretty crucial holds are about to break off. Glad I got it done while it is still a 5.12. Apr 21, 2008

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. Oct 22, 2009

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. Nov 30, 2009
