Green Cheese is left-most buttress of Tycho Wall, to the left of Pipeline. Telstar takes a center line up the buttress after it is reached by wandering up through the slabby toe as indicated in the photo. The route went all free and was reportedly not slimy at all considering the marked green color of the overall wall. Route tops out at the large overhang in the center of the face.


Descend via slabs to the north rounding west back into the cirque.


Standard rack, emphasis on large. Route was originally done with hexes and stoppers so SLCDs should be no problem.
