Description Suggest change

Frothing Green starts just right of the tree that is left of the central cluster of routes on the main wall. Run up on intermittent blocks and ledges. The line finds the best continuity on a wall otherwise disrupted by frequent ledge systems. A few spicy run-outs on jugs leads to a technical slab for the last 30 feet of the line. The slab is fun and can be done so as to pick up a jug haul arete for the last 15 feet. I did not detect any manufactured holds on this route.

Protection Suggest change

12 to 14 draws and double ropes. At 105 feet in length, getting back to the ground with a 60 meter rope will leave you with 10 feet of easy scrambling to the base. It is more simple to use double ropes.

Warning! Suggest change

Do not use a single 60m rope and lower your partner on this climb! Your partner may go off the end of the rope!
