DescriptionAs you're driving in, this is one of two obviously great lines across the Shoshone River. Mean Green's first pitch is the long, thin line 1/2 mile left of the wider High on Boulder/Moonrise flow. Up high on the right side of the drainage above pitch one and all the rock bands, you will see an incredibly wide flow of leprechaun-green WI 3.
Park at the end of the road, take the trail around the fenced in ranch, cross the river and hit the riverbank trail. Take the trail down to the Mean Green drainage and hike uphill. The approach looks short and sweet........
Pitch 1: 60 meters of WI 4.
Pitch 2: 25 meters of WI 4+.
Pitch 3: 30 meters of WI 3+.
Pitch 4: 25 meters of WI 5.
Pitches 5,6,7 are roughly 140 meters of WI 3.
Rap the route on V-threads and the occasional bolt and bring a headlamp.
