Very nice varied line. Starts out as steep slab with a series of ledges and mantles and barely adequate small pro. Second half of climb ascends steep and somewhat devious steep groove and final sorta sketchy small overhang and grooves.
The next major buttress that sits behind Minor Mass and South Tower. Start at base of South Tower and scramble up and left past gully and to a position below the next major buttress. Buttress is NW west of South Tower. Green Ledges follows a line along right side of the South facing and most prominently viewed facet of this buttress from below and is directly right of the route "Manhandler".
Small wires and small TCU or Metolius power cams or Micro Camelots. Tricams are useful in upper section. I got a nice Ball nut in for the final mantle move into upper half of the route. The first moves are minimally protected.
