Description [Suggest Change]
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.
Location [Suggest Change]
Near the center of Book Cliffs, on the right wall of the largest open book on the crag.
Protection [Suggest Change]
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.
