Near the center of Book Cliffs is a large open book, with two bolted lines on the left wall (Guillotine and Blues Streak), a broken pillar in the corner, and an attractive green face on the right wall. Green Eggs climbs the green face, starting just left of the buttress/arete (which is A-climb-a-tize) and right of the broken pillar in the corner. Climb more or less straight up, protecting in horizontal cracks and resisting the urge to traverse off the line, until it is necessary to step left to surmount a small bulge. Continue to anchors just below the top. This is the best of the easier (5.9 and down) routes on the crag.

Cams from micros to 2 inches. Not for the beginning 5.8 climber, since the protection does not come often, but the route is much better as a lead than a top-rope. As of June 2008, the anchors are fixed with webbing and a lap link sufficient for rapping.

Excellent face route, the gear is spaced but bomber. A single set from tiny to .75 or maybe #1 will get you up safely. Long runners help as you can wander all over the face to get pro. The webbing/rap ring was gone, leaving 2 bolts as the anchor. Walk off or retrieve your anchor at the end of the day, it's an easy walk and can be used to rap off the two 5.8 to the right.

(climbed in 1998) +1 on the gear being "spaced but bomber". Keep an eye out for a deep two finger socket above the main horizontal crack, (a hold you don't normally find in the Uinta's) and if you have any tri-cams in your arsenal, this is a good spot to save some wear and tear on your cam wires and use them.
