Description

Lower Green Sleeves is often climbed early season in thin conditions, but bulks out to a fine WI3- later on. It provides a great venue for beginners and is easily top-roped from a tree on the right. A directional screw may be helpful, but is not necessary. One may hike left and up around the cliff band to set up a TR. However, a lead is the recommended choice when the ice is in good condition.

Location

To reach this climb, traverse left from G1 along the base of the cliff band 5-10 minutes. Pass the short, relatively unaesthetic climbs of Willow Gully (historic first ice pitch to be climbed in Hyalite), Ice 101, and Clump Tree Gully. Near the end of the cliff band, one will come to Lower Green Sleeves.

Not much ice at the moment, but made for fun mixed soloing. A bit like gardening near the top and awfully wet throughout. Nov 11, 2012

Great route to take a beginner to, less steep than G1 and not as many people. Apr 5, 2011
