Description

An easy 5.7 by Seneca standards. Greenwall is in the shade for a lage portion of the day, and fairly protected fom the wind.

1st Pitch
Go up a short corner system. There are three cracks. The one is too big for most gear. Climb the middle one. Probably the crux of the route. Traverse across the large ledge and belay as close to the corner as you can. Trees and larger gear (#3).

2nd Pitch
Climb the corner and left facing face thru the intimidating looking bulge.

3rd Pitch
Forth class scramble onto the proper summit

Location

Green Wall follows a couple of corner systems, besides the large bare green face on the north end of the south Peak of Seneca.

Protection

Gear up to 3 inches for the second belay.

This climbs the amazing green wall just left of pleasant overhangs. It follows a obvious corner from top to bottom. The first pitch, has 3 crack corners to choose from, I took the middle one, to a big ledge. The second pitch is what this climb is all about. It is airy and spectacular, The rock is excellent. It uses a lot of smaller gear even though the crack is quite large. The last pitch is just a top out. Much fun. Oct 22, 2012

Thought this would be some useful info for this awesome route. Just was up this route last week and once you top out the last pitch (scramble up the gully) there is a fairly good rap station RIGHT AT THE TOP. You crawl through a hole in the top fan of the rocks and can rap the east wall to the ground. A 70m double rope rappel WILL get you all the way to the ground, or single rope it with a 60 to one of the multiple bolted belay stations on that east face. Hope this helps Mar 15, 2014
Great climb. Once at the top there are rap rings you can rap down 30 feet to another set but then if you try and rap. Don't use a single 70 meter. Huge over hang and you will be a spider hanging in space. Instead climb along the ridge until it drops down to a safe spot. There are rap rings down and around the corner from a tree that has some old slings on it. This is to rap down on the west face. Jul 30, 2017

Awesome climb- you dont realize how amazing the position is until you look at where u were from the parking lot lol- You need two ropes to do the raps at the top of this which is directly above pleasant overhangs..

2 70s will get you to the ground in one shot

2 60s will get you down to base of thais and po in 2 raps, first rap is 50 feet to slightly lower bolts

This is a nice alternative to get back to the base of these climbs as opposed to rapping all the way over by traffic jam chimmney and doing 3 raps Jun 17, 2018

At the start of p2, you'll be tempted to place a purple/0.5 BD as your first piece after you get into the main corner.. beware the crack will certainly eat it. I barely fished mine back out with two nut tools and noted at least one more even deeper inside. Jul 15, 2018

Take the "easy 5.7 by Seneca standards" as a multi layered subjective description. This was a fantastic climb, the second pitch is a joy to climb. That said it is airy and it doesn't come for free in the same way that I felt Ecstasy to be. There was also a weird transition from the initial crack to a small ledge on the first pitch that felt reasonably committing for the grade.
Highly recommend the climb for anyone that feels comfortable at the grade and has climbed at least one exposed 5.7 route at Seneca and felt comfortably challenged by it. Sep 3, 2018
